Basil Pesto

Course: 
Ingredients: 
  • 1 lb fresh basil
  • 1/2 lb. grated parmesean cheese
  • olive oil
  • clove of garlic
  • pine nuts (or walnuts, but we prefer the pine nut flavor)
Directions: 

Put the basil, nuts and cheese in a food processor. Blend and drizzle in olive oil by taste. Don't skimp on the oil! It adds flavor and moisture and ties the flavors together. Put pesto on pasta, or just about anything really! Pesto can be frozen (divide into serving amounts) and eaten all winter!
