My pesto is 2 cups basil leaves 4 cloves garlic 1/4 cup pine nuts or sunflower seeds 1/4 cup grated Parmesan (homebrand fine) 1/4 cup extra virgin olive oil Whiz all ingredients except oil. Drizzle until form thick paste. Sometimes I add a tin of tomatoes for a change when it's going on pasta.
Pesto on pasta and about to be stirred through. Pasta was slightly over cooked and a bit soft. Memo to self!! Remember to cook for only 4 minutes!!
