Step 1
1 large bunch of basil • leaves only
3 garlic cloves • peeled
1 handful pine nuts (pignoli)
3/4 cup freshly grated parmesan cheese
3-4 tbsp extra-virgin olive oil
Heat oven to 350 degrees. Spread the pine nuts evenly on a baking sheet and toast until golden and fragrant, about 8 to 10 minutes. Let cool.

Food Processor Method: Combine the pine nuts, basil, and garlic. Pulse until the pine nuts are finely chopped. Then, with processor running, pour the oil in a steady stream through the feed tube and process until smooth. Season with salt and/or pepper if needed.
