PESTO :: Add about a cup of basil leaves to a food processor or blender. Throw in grated Parmesan, pine nuts, garlic, salt, and pepper. Turn on the food processor and drizzle in enough olive oil to get it to the consistency you want.
Pesto goes with veggies, chicken, shrimp, pasta, I prefer it with garlic bread or some fresh baked pita chips. Perfect way to use up all this Basil as my plant has decided to go wild and grow like crazy.
