Description

Summer is quickly coming to an end and this is a great way to enjoy every last leaf of your basil plant!

Ingredients

  • 1 Tablespoon Pine Nuts
  • 1 cup Packed Basil Leaves
  • 2 Tablespoons Extra Virgin Olive Oil
  • 1 Tablespoon Freshly Grated Parmesan Cheese
  • 2 cloves Garlic, Crushed
  • 1 pinch Salt
  • 1 pinch Freshly Ground Pepper

Preparation

In a dry pan over medium low heat, toast the pine nuts until they are slightly darkened and you can smell them (about 10 minutes). Set aside and let them cool.

In a food processor or blender, mix all of the ingredients into a paste.

Notes:
1. Go very easy on the salt because the Parmesan cheese has a lot of it.
2. If the sauce is too thick for your taste, thin it out a little with some more olive oil.
3. This is a very garlicky sauce. If you are sensitive to garlic, just use 1 clove in this recipe (I love garlic; I use both cloves!). Keep in mind though that when you add this sauce to anything hot, the garlic will mellow.
4. Feel free to use the traditional mortar and pestle; I don’t have one so the food processor it is!
