Pesto Sauce


1 cup packed fresh basil leaves

1/3 cup pine nuts

1/3 cup grated Parmesan cheese

1-2 garlic cloves

Olive Oil

Black Pepper


Wash and pat dry the basil leaves.  Cut off stems. Peel and dice garlic.

In a blender or food processor, add basil, pine nuts, Parmesan cheese and garlic with 1/2 cup of olive oil and blend for a minute or until a smooth consistency.

For a thinner consistency, add more olive oil. Add ground pepper to taste.

Serve pesto sauce with pasta or for a healthier option, with spaghetti squash.
