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.
