     (WOOD) Fresh Basil Pesto

Category   Sauces
Sub Category   None

2 cups fresh basil leaves, packed
1/2 cup freshly grated parmesan cheese
1/2 cup extra virgin olive oil
1/3 cup pine nuts (can substitute chopped walnuts)
3 medium size garlic cloves, minced
salt and freshly ground black pepper, to taste

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.
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.
