Love this when you get fresh basil out of the garden, and its perfect on bruschetta!


Ingredients (makes 1 cup)

  • 2 cups fresh basil leaves, packed
  • 1/2 cup 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
  • pinch Salt and freshly ground black pepper to taste

Method

  1. 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.
  3. Serve with pasta, or over baked potatoes, or spread over toasted baguette slices.
