Homemade Pesto Sauce from Scratch

EASY PESTO FROM SCRATCH

3 cups fresh basil leaves
1/2 cup olive oil
3/4 cup Romano cheese, grated
1/2 cup pine nuts
1 tsp salt
1/2 tsp pepper

Place ingredients in a food processor or blender and puree to a smooth paste. You may also use a mortar and pestle with great results. If the pesto seems too dry, just add more olive oil. Makes 2 cups.

Pesto is usually served with homemade fettuccine, but it is also delicious with any homemade pasta.  You may also top bruschetta with fresh pesto - it makes a great appetizer.
