What you will need:
2 cups of fresh basil leaves
½ cup grated parmesan
2 small cloves of garlic
½ tsp of salt
½ tsp of pepper
½ cup of extra virgin olive oil
- 1. Combine first five ingredients in a food processor and pulse until it forms the consistency of the grated parmesan.
- 2. Slowly add the olive oil while the food processor is on and it will form a nice thick sauce.
Tip: Be sure to rinse the basil leaves well or your pesto might taste a bit gritty!
