|1½ cup||Basil leaves -- fresh|
|2||Garlic cloves -- peeled|
|(may be up to 5 cloves) *|
|¼ cup||Pine nuts|
|¼ cup||Parmesan cheese -- fresh|
|¼ cup||Lemon juice -- fresh|
Put the basil, garlic, pine nuts, and parmesan cheese in a blender or food processor. Turn the machine on and drizzle in the lemon juice.
Continue to puree until a smooth paste isformed.
* The amount of garlic you use is a matter of personal taste. Also, some garlic is more pungent. So start perhaps with 2 medium cloves, then taste, and add more if, as I do, you like a strong, garlicky flavor.
