Equipment

  • Table Blender
  • Spatula

Ingredients
  

  • 2 cups Fresh Basil
  • 1/2 cup Parmesan Cheese
  • 1/2 cup Extra Virgin Olive Oil
  • 1/3 cup Pine Nuts
  • 3 cloves Garlic
  • Salt

Instructions

  • Add Parmesan and garlic and pulse several times more. Make sure to clear the sides of the blender with your spatula.
