Simple Ingredients

Since all of the ingredients you need are listed on the last slide, let's move on to the how-to section!

Blend the Basil and Pine Nuts

Chop your basil and pine nuts before blending them in the food processor so that it's easier to combine everything together. 

Add Cheese and Garlic

Pulse the food processor a few times to blend these additions with the other ingredients. 

Add Olive Oil and Seasoning

Gradually add the olive oil on slow speed until you get a smooth consistency. Then, season with salt and pepper.
