homemade pesto

yummy summer meals coming into full swing! my home grown basil has made us a few yummy meals but this is my first pesto of the season
what you need...
2 cups packed basil
1/4 cup pine nuts
2 cloves of garlic
2/3 cup olive oil
salt/pepper (to taste)
1/3 cup parmesan cheese
pesto in action
what to do...
put the basil, pine nuts, and garlic in your food processor...pulse until they are all chopped up nicely. add 1/2 cup of the olive oil, salt, and pepper. blend until smooth. add the cheese and blend some more. if you are using it right now, you add the rest of the olive oil...if you're using later, add the rest of the oil just before use.
end product! scrumptious pesto!!!
