Basil Pesto Super Easy

48

Super easy and super tasty, this Basil Pesto goes great on a baguette or in a pasta salad. Throw together some cooked curly veggie noodles, along with cut up green beans and cut up string cheese. Add some Basil Pesto and a little extra virgin olive oil and you have yourself a mouth watering pesto pasta! I always make quadruple this recipe.

8
2 cups fresh basil leaves
1/2 cup extra virgin olive oil
1/4 cup Parmesan cheese
2 teaspoons minced jar garlic or 4 cloves
3 tablespoons pine nuts
Place all items in a food processor. Turn it on for 30 seconds or so. When it looks like pesto (well mixed, yummy green stuff), turn it off. Spread on toasted or non toasted baguette slices or mix it in...
