What to do with the MIGHTY PESTO TREE?

Ingredients

  • 3 cups fresh basil leaves, moderately packed.
  • 1/2 cup of pine nuts.
  • 10 oz olive oil.
  • 3/4 cup fresh parmesan (grated).
  • 1/4 cup fresh garlic, loosely chopped.
  • 3/4 tsp both Salt and Pepper (to taste).

Procedure

If you have one of the fancy blenders (Blentec, Vitamix), you will have a much easier time.  You might be able to load all the ingredients in and choose a special setting similar to "Sauces and Dressings".  If not, you will have to go back and forth a while pulsing the blender and scraping the sides to get every thing mixed evenly.  

I think it's worth it.  Just a few tablespoons of the dense pesto goes a long way covering a plate of warm pasta.  It also keeps a very long time in the freezer and still tastes great.  Here is the full pesto recipe from my website.
