½ cup pine nuts

⅔ cup grated parmesan

1 garlic clove, smashed

6 or so cups of basil leaves

½-¾ cup olive oil


Place the pine nuts, cheese and garlic into a food processor or blender.  Process until the nuts are well ground. Add the basil and, while processing, add a stream of the olive oil until it has reached a consistency you like.  Some prefer loose and oily, some more thick. Salt to taste.

Note: for variety, switch up the basil with arugula or spinach or kale or cilantro or any combination.
