- Ready In:
- 100 basil leaves
- 1⁄3 - 1⁄2 cup olive oil
- 1⁄2 parmigiano-reggiano cheese (very expensive, but worth it)
- 2 tablespoons pignolis
- Place basil, cheese and nuts in food processor or blender.
- Pulse a few times.
- Stream olive oil through feed tube until desired consistancy is achieved--I usually use a little more than a 1/4 cup of oil.
- Toss with hot cooked pasta or use as a spread.

This was very easy to make and smelled so wonderful! I counted out 100 basil leaves of various sizes. Turned out to be about 2 cups of leaves packed (to save others the counting time). I ended up using the full 1/3 cups of olive oil to make it the consistency that I like. It tastes wonderful! I will use this on Recipe #157860 tonight.Reply
