Perfectly Pleasant Pesto Sauce

Perfectly Pleasant Pesto Sauce

2 Cups Fresh Basil Leaves, Packed

1/4 Cup Lightly Toasted Pine Nuts

2 Large Garlic Cloves

1/2 Cup Grated Parmesan or Romano Cheese

1/2 Cup Extra Virgin Olive Oil

Put all ingredients in a food processor (or blender if you don’t have a food processor) except the oil, and set on pulse. Start to add the oil slowly, pulsing constantly until you have a smooth paste. Use immediately to top any pasta dish.

If you made to much to finish and would like to store it for another day simply put a layer of olive oil on top of it and store in a tight container.
