Ingredients

2 cups basil
fresh leaves, packed
*
½ cup Parmesan cheese
freshly grated
½ cup olive oil, extra-virgin
cup pine nuts
or walnuts
3 medium garlic cloves
minced
*
1 x salt and black pepper
to taste, freshly ground pepper
*

Directions

Special equipment needed: A food processor

Combine the basil in with the pine nuts, pulse a few times in a food processor. (If you are using walnuts instead of pine nuts and they are not already chopped, pulse them a few times first, before adding the basil.)

Add the garlic, pulse a few times more.

Slowly add the olive oil in a constant stream while the food processor is on.

Stop to scrape down the sides of the food processor with a rubber spatula.

Add the grated cheese and pulse again until blended.

Add a pinch of salt and freshly ground black pepper to taste.

Serve with pasta, or over baked potatoes, or spread over toasted baguette slices.
