Basil Pesto September 05 2020, 0 Comments

INGREDIENTS
  • ½ cup pine nuts
  • 3 oz. Parmesan, grated (about ¾ cup)
  • 2 garlic cloves, finely grated
  • 6 cups basil leaves (about 3 large bunches)
  • ¾ cup extra-virgin olive oil
  • 1 tsp. kosher salt

DIRECTIONS

Preheat oven to 350°. Toast pine nuts on a rimmed baking sheet, tossing once halfway through, until golden brown, 5–7 minutes. Transfer to a food processor and let cool. Add cheese and garlic and pulse until finely ground, about 1 minute. Add basil and place the top back on. With the motor running, add oil in a slow and steady stream until pesto is mostly smooth, with just a few flecks of green, about 1 minute. Season with salt.
