Homemade Pesto

There is nothing quite like the taste of freshly made pesto sauce. It's amazing with penne pasta, but you can also spread it on fish and grilled meats...pesto is very flexible. 

Here are the ingredients you will need:

1/2 cup olive oil
2-3 garlic cloves
1 cup grated Parmesan cheese
1/3 cup Pine nuts
3 large bunches Basil
1 1/2 teaspoons sea salt 

Combine basil, olive oil, pine nuts and garlic into a food processor or blender. Pulse often to get things finely diced. Add Parmesan cheese and salt, pulse until smooth. If using for pasta, save one cup of the boiled starchy pasta water and add that into the pesto sauce - mix into the pasta pot to create a lovely creamy sauce. Buon Appetito!
