- 2 cups loosely packed basil leaves. (I used one basil "plant" from Trader Joes)
- 1 T minced garlic
- 1/3 cup pine nuts
- 1/2 cup shredded parmesan cheese (or "farm" as Charlie calls it)
Put all above ingredients in the bowl of your food processor. (Oh yeah, you need a food processor). Process until them mixture resembles a thick paste. Then, with machine running, slowly drizzle in 1/2 cup olive oil in a slow steady stream. Season with salt and black pepper.
We ate ours tossed with farfalle pasta and grilled chicken. But you can eat yours however you want.
