Basil Pesto

We've been enjoying lots of Basil Pesto lately as our Basil bushes seem to love this environment.

This is the recipe I've been making.  It's fairly standard.  I know some people put things like Macadamia nuts in as well but I figure it has enough calories just the way it is.

This quantity filled the jars in the picture which really isn't enough but it will last a couple of weeks.

Basil Pesto
3 cups of fresh picked basil leaves
1 cup grated Parmesan cheese
90g toasted pine nuts
200ml of Extra Virgin Olive Oil
Put all ingredients into food processor and mix until it looks like Pesto.
