Who doesn't love Basil?

I am sharing a delightful and delicious recipe with you. Easy and inexpensive.

2 cups fresh basil leaves, packed
1/2 parmesan cheese
1/2 cup olive oil
1/3 cup pine nuts OR walnuts (I use walnuts)
3 medium garlic cloves
salt and pepper

Combine basil with nuts in Cuisinart Food Processor. If you are using walnuts you will want to pulse them first. Add garlic and pulse a few more times.

Slowly add the olive oil in a constant stream while Cuisinart Food Processor is on. Scraping the sides and add the cheese. Pulse until blended. Add a pinch of salt and pepper to taste.
