I increased the amount of garlic and pine nuts. I also added a little lemon juice (as suggested by Ned -- thanks!).
- 2 cloves garlic
- 2 cups fresh basil leaves*
- 1/2 cup extra virgin olive oil
- 1/4 cup pine nuts
- 1/4 cup freshly grated parmesan
- 1/2 tsp kosher salt
- juice of 1/2 lemon (optional)
- * You can use a mix of fresh basil and italian flat leaf parsley if you're up for it!
Add everything to the food processor and blend! Easy peasy.
