Make your Pesto immediately before serving
for a fresh and extremely satisfying sauce. Served over a bed of hot spinach
linguine or regular spaghetti, the flavor becomes intense to the taste and smell.
Serve with a loaf of crusty bread and everyone will be satisfied. Enjoy!
Your Host, Brad
2 oz fresh basil leaves
2 garlic cloves
1 oz pine nuts
4 Tbl extra-virgin olive oil
4 Tbl freshly grated Parmesan cheese
Combine the basil, garlic, and pine nuts in a food
processor or blender and reduce to a puree. If you have a mortar and pestle, even
better. With the machine running on low, add the oil slowly. when the mixture
is well emulsified, add the cheese and blend briefly. Taste test. Toss with
freshly cooked pasta and serve.
