A must-have recipe in your repertoire. Peppery basil, sharp pecorino romano cheese, earthy and salty pine nuts, and good olive oil. Perfect for pasta, bruschetta, polenta, or as a sandwich spread.
Add basil, pine nuts, and garlic to the bowl of a food processor, process until well chopped. While the processor is running pour olive oil into the feed tube until the pesto comes together. Add cheese, salt, and pepper. Pulse until well combined.
Transfer to a bowl and use immediately. See notes for storage tips.
