Rich Basil Cream Sauce

I had excess basil from a friend with an overgrown herb garden and used it for this amazingly rich, creamy sauce, thats very easy. Great with pasta, chicken, etc.

ingredients

directions

  • Heat light cream, salt and pepper over medium-low heat, allow to come to a simmer while working on the basil.
  • Place basil, garlic, nuts, and cheese in food processor and blend until almost smooth.
  • Add olive oil in thin stream until emulsifies, while scraping the sides down to blend (emulsify: turns a lighter shade of green).
  • By this time the cream will have come to a light simmer, add half of the cream to your basil mix and blend, until smooth, add this back to the remaining cream in the pan.
  • Bring to a light simmer for 5 minute.
  • Serve! :).
