Number of Servings: 16


    6 oz basil leaves, washed
    7 cloves garlic
    1 cup pine nuts
    1/2 cup grated parmigiano reggiano cheese
    1/2 tsp salt
    1 tsp pepper
    5 tbsp extra virgin olive oil


This is a great no cook sauce. It can be stored in the fridge for about a week or frozen in ice cube trays to add flavor to soups. When I make this for my family I cook about 1 lb of pasta and toss the warm cooked pasta in about 1 cup of the finished sauce.


Place all ingredients into a food processor or blender. Puree until smooth. If it is too thick, you can thin it with water.
