Ingredients

  • 4

    cups fresh basil leaves

  • 4 - 6

    cloves garlic

  • 3/4

    c toasted pine nuts

  • 1/2

    c fresh parsley leaves

  • 1

    t salt

  • 1

    c olive oil

  • 3/4

    c freshly grated Parmesan

Directions

Place all ingredients except the oil and cheese in a blender or food processor. Slowly, while blender or processor is running, add the oil and process or blend to a chunky paste. Do not overblend; you want this to be chunky, not smooth. Add more oil if needed. Fold in the cheese and store this up to a week in the refrigerator, or for several months in the freezer, in an airtight container. Serving Suggestions: Use as a spread on tomato halves or slices, and broil. Mix with oil and vinegar for an instant and tasty salad dressing. Mix with bread crumbs to use as a filling for chicken or stuff mushrooms. Serve over pasta.
