Basil Pesto

An ingredient I've used forever, and just finally made! Super simple, as long as you have copious amounts of basil on hand (thank you university farm for giving me 2 cups basil packed for 1$!)

Basil Pesto
from Naturally Ella

2 cups basil leaves, packed
2 cloves garlic, chopped.
1/4 cup raw pine nuts
1/3 cup Parmesan cheese
2 Tbs. olive oil
2 Tbs. lemon juice
salt to taste

1. In a dry skillet, lightly toast the pine nuts.
2. In a food processor, pulse garlic. Add basil, pine nuts, Parmesan, olive oil and lemon juice. Pulse until well combined, adding more oil/lemon juice as needed.
3. Season to taste with salt.
