Basil Pesto

Pesto sauce is delicious in recipes or as a dip for crusty bread. You can find it at the supermarket near the refrigerated fresh pasta. If you want to make your own, this recipe comes from Every Day with Rachael Ray June/July 2009

Basil Pesto

2 cups fresh basil leaves
2 cloves garlic
1/2 cup grated Parmesan cheese (not Kraft that stuff is not cheese!)
1/3 cup pine nuts
1/2 cup extra-virgin olive oil
Salt & Pepper

Using a food processor, finely chop the basil and garlic. Add the Parmesan and pine nuts and pulse into a coarse paste.
