This recipe is nothing exciting.. just a basic basil pesto.
2 cups basil leaves, packed
1/4 cup toasted pine nuts
2 cloves garlic
2/3 cup olive oil
1/2 cup Parmesan cheese
Salt and pepper
Throw the basil, pine nuts, garlic and cheese in food processor. Pulse until combined.
2. Slowly add the olive oil, pulse again. just keep adding olive oil until mixture is smooth. just eyeball it.
3. Taste and add salt and pepper as needed. SIMPLE.
Now I can just pull out individual portions as I need them. Simple. If you want to make it exciting.. do it while drinking a glass of wine! That tends to make things more fun. :)
