- 2 cups fresh packed basil leaves
- 2-3 cloves garlic
- 1/4 cup pine nuts or walnuts
- 2/3 cup extra virgin olive oil
- 1/2 cup grated Parmesan cheese
- Salt and pepper to taste
Place basil, nuts or walnuts, garlic, and parmesan cheese in a food processor. Pulse so that the pesto appears like a mix of chopped ingredients. Stir in olive oil, salt and pepper.
