1/2 cup of GOOD grated cheese (Locatelli or Pecorino Romano)
1/4 cup of Pignoli nuts (or walnuts if you don't have)

Best to make in a food processor - add all ingredients and puree until smooth, dollop all over fresh pasta and cooked chicken cutlet or meatballs, steak, it's AMAZING!!!
Heat the pasta in a skillet with a tablespoon of Olive Oil, add Pesto Sauce and whatever meat you have in the fridge. Heat through, sprinkle with a good grated cheese (Pecorino Romano or Locatelli) and EAT!!
Serve with Garlic Pesto Italian Bread (slice a loaf of bread Lengthwise, sauté garlic and oil in a pan (you can do this before you heat the pasta!) add a bit of the Pesto Sauce and brush over the bread. Bake at 350 for about 10 minutes till browned on the top) YUMMY
