Pesto

Total Time:
14 min
Prep:
14 min

Yield:
2/3 Cup.

Ingredients
  • 1 cup basil leaves, carefully stemmed, very firmly packed
  • 2 tablespoons pine nuts
  • 2 teaspoons minced garlic
  • 6 tablespoons Ligurian or ProvenHal olive oil
  • 2 teaspoons freshly-grated Parmesan cheese, firmly packed
  • 2 teaspoons freshly-grated Pecorino Romano cheese, firmly packed
Directions
  • Wash and dry basil well. In food processor combine basil, pine nuts and garlic; process briefly to a coarse grainy paste. With motor running, add olive oil in a thin stream. Scrape pesto into a bowl (it will still be fairly grainy). Add cheeses and mix well. Adjust seasoning with salt. If pesto is too thick, add some more olive oil; some oil should appear around edges.
