- 3 cups fresh basil leaves
- 4 cloves of garlic
- 3/4 cup grated Parmesan cheese
- 1/2 cup olive oil
- 1/4 roasted pinenuts
Combine basil, olive oil, garlic, cheese and nuts in a food processor. Blend until a smooth paste.
Instead of putting into a container, I freeze in an ice cube tray. Once frozen, put into baggie and freeze until needed. I find the cubes are the perfect size for use later.
