Why I Love This Recipe

This recipe is basically from a bakespace member (Susan). I wanted to make a few very slight changes for my own personal taste so I have re-entered this recipe so that I will remember the next time i make it (It would be really cool if there was a place for notes once we've added a recipe to our cookbooks).

Enjoy over pasta. Or to use as a sandwich spread, mix equal amounts of pesto with mayonnaise.

Ingredients You'll Need

2 cups packed basil leaves (about 3 oz.) you may also add some baby spinach leaves
3 garlic cloves, minced
1/2 cup parmesan cheese
1/2 cup pine nuts
1/2 cup olive oil
Salt and Pepper to taste (doesn't need much at all if any)


In food processor process basil / spinach leaves until fine, Add garlic, nuts and cheese and salt and pepper. Process until fine. Slowly add oil and process for a few seconds more. Store in the refrigerator.
