Basil grows rapidly. Before you know it, you have so much Basil and you don't know what to do with it. That is your clue that it is time to make Pesto!
The ingredients for Pesto are:
2 cups Basil leaves
1/4 cup pine nuts
Dash kosher salt
2/3 cup Extra Virgin Olive Oil
2 cloves garlic
3/4 cup Parmesan cheese
Put the Basil, pine nuts, salt, pepper, and garlic in a food processor.
Turn the food processor on low. Slowly pour the olive oil in.
When you are finished, remove the mixture from the food processor. Add the Parmesan cheese.
Pesto is great on fresh bread, pasta, and gnocchi. Mangia!
