This pesto brings a rich, fresh taste to pasta (of course!). But it’s versatile: You can add some to cream sauces, use it on pizza (by itself or with tomato sauce), top a baked potato with it, spoon it onto bread or use it as a marinade—let your imagination be your guide.
Pesto can also be made with other ingredients, such as mint, arugula or kale.
3 medium cloves garlic
1 large bunch of basil, leaves only, washed and dried
1 small handful pine nuts
About 3/4 cup freshly grated, loosely packed Parmesan cheese
