Fresh Pesto

Fresh Pesto

This time of year there is nothing like Pesto, pasta and a good red wine. It is light and makes you feel refreshed and satisfied without getting too full!

1 LB Basil leaves (more or less)

1/4 cup Pine nuts, lightly toasted

1/2 C Freshly grated Parmesan cheese

1/4 C Freshly grated Romano cheese

1/2 C Extra virgin olive oil

Salt and fresh ground pepper to taste

1. Mix all ingredients, except salt and pepper, together in large bowl. Place 2/3 of mixture into food processor and blend until smooth.

2. Add last 1/3 of mixture to food processor and blend until lightly coarse. The combination of well-blended with coarse-blended pesto gives the sauce the correct feel and releases all the flavor of the basil.

3. Salt and pepper to taste.
