Number of Servings: 18

Ingredients

    1/2 cup toasted pine nuts
    6-9 garlic cloves (peeled)
    3/4 cup grated parmesean cheese (I like the good stuff from Sam's)
    2 cups fresh basil (washed and dried)
    1/2 cup fresh italian parsley (washed and dried)
    1/2 cup olive oil
    1/2 cup chicken stock
    zest and juice of 1 lemon
    salt to taste (approx 1 tsp)

Directions

Combine garlic, basil, pine nuts, cheese, lemon zest and salt in food processor. Blend until grainy consistency. Then gradually blend in olive oil, chicken stock, and lemon juice. This produces a slightly thicker consistency than store bought, add more chicken stock if you want a thinner pesto! Taste for seasoning, add as necessary.

Serve over pasta, use as a marinade, a dip, off a spoon...
