Basil Pesto

So far, my favorite thing about our garden is all of the basil. Our basil plants are both out of control and harvesting the basil only makes it come back fuller. Sooo.... One of the easiest things you can do with basil is make pesto. This is sort of a non-recipe but will give you some super tasty pesto.

Basil Pesto

About 2 Cups of basil leaves plucked from the stem
about 3/4 Cup of shredded Parmesan Cheese
about 1/4 Cup of raw pine nuts
3 or 4 cloves of garlic
salt & pepper to taste
Olive Oil

Add all but the olive oil into a food processor and pulse until blended. Slowly drizzle in the olive oil until you have the consistency you want. About 3/4 to 1 Cup should do it.
