Ingredients

  • 2

    cups fresh basil leaves, packed

  • 1/2

    cup freshly grated Parmesan-Reggiano or Romano cheese

  • 1/2

    cup extra virgin olive oil

  • 1/3

    cup pine nuts or walnuts

  • 3

    medium sized garlic cloves, minced

  • Salt and freshly ground black pepper to taste

Directions

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. 2 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. Makes 1 cup. Serve with pasta, or over baked potatoes, or spread over toasted baguette slices.
