This basil pesto always smells like summer!
- 1 cup loosely packed basil leaves
- 1 cup freshly grated Parmesan cheese
- 1/3 cup freshly grated Romano Cheese
- 1/3 cup pine nuts
- Coarse kosher salt
- 1/2 cup extra virgin olive oil
In the bowl of a food processor, combine basil, Parmesan, Romano, pine nuts, and salt to taste. With the motor running, stream in olive oil until smooth. If you prefer a thinner pesto, add additional olive oil a little bit at a time until the desired consistency is reached. Serve on pasta, sandwiches, vegetables, or anything your heart desires.
