Put the basil, garlic, pine nuts, and salt in a food processor or blender and puree until smooth. Drizzle olive oil. Taste and add more salt if needed.
If freezing: line ice cube trays with plastic wrap. Scoop pesto into trays using 1-2 tablespoons of pesto per "cube." Freeze. Put in ziplock after solid. To use: Thaw and add cheese.
If using fresh: Add the cheese and process a few seconds until just incorporated.
Enough pesto for a pound of pasta and recommended it tossed with linguine, capellini or meat or cheese tortellini.
