  • Ingredients

    • 4 cloves of garlic, minced
    • 1 large bunch of basil, leaves only, washed and patted dry (about 1.5-2 ounces, or 2 lightly packed cups)
    • one small handful of raw pine nuts (about 2-3 tablespoons)
    • 1 loosely packed cup Parmesan cheese, freshly grated (if you are looking to use pre-grated Parmesan, you might as well just buy your pesto because there is no point in making it yourself if you are not using fresh ingredients)
    • 3 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil
