Basil Pesto

  • 2 cups fresh basil leaves (can substitute half the amount with baby spinach
  • 1/2 cup grated parmesan cheese
  • 1/2 cup olive oil
  • 1/3 cup pine nuts (can substitute with chopped walnuts)
  • 3 garlic cloves, minced
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/8 teaspoon black pepper

In a food processor or blender, pulse the basil leaves and pine nuts first.
Then add all of the rest of the ingredients and blend together.
The less in contact with air the pesto is, the longer it will last.
