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.
