PESTO!2 cups fresh basil leaves (or 1 cup basil leaves, 1 cup spinach leaves)
1/2 cup Parmesan Cheese (or Romano or Reggiano cheese)
1/2 cup extra virgin olive oil
1/3 cup pine nuts (or sub walnuts as pine nuts are stupid expensive)

Sea salt  & pepper

In you food processor, place basil/spinach and pine nuts in and pulse for 3-5 times. Add in the garlic, cheese and pulse again until it has been mixed into a fine sized mixture. Then turn on the food processor and slowly pour in the olive oil.
