Basil Pesto

Recipe from Longue Vue House and Gardens

Ingredients:

• 1/2 cup walnuts
• 9 garlic cloves
• 5 cups fresh basil leaves, packed
• 1 teaspoon kosher salt
• 1 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
• 1 1/2 cups good quality olive oil
• 1 cup freshly grated Parmesan

Directions:

Place the walnuts and garlic in the bowl of a food processor fitted with a steel blade. Process for 15 seconds. Add the basil leaves, salt and pepper. With the processor running, slowly pour the olive oil into the bowl through the feed tube and process until the pesto is thoroughly pureed. Add the Parmesan and puree for one minute. Use right away or store the pesto in the refrigerator or freezer with a think film of olive oil on top.
