  • Combine the basil, olive oil, pine nuts and garlic cloves in a blender (or food processor).
  • Blend until a paste form, stopping often to push down the basil.
  • Add in the Parmesan cheese and Kosher salt; blend until smooth.
  • Transfer to a bowl.
  • NOTE to clean fresh basil leaves; swirl in a bowl of water then spin them very dry in a salad spinner.
  • If not using right away store the clean leaves in a sealed plastic bag with a slightly damp paper towel, the leaves should keep well refrigerated for up to 2 days.
