I got this recipe from a package of fresh basil a couple of years ago.

Traditional Basil Pesto

⅔ oz. fresh basil
2 cloves garlic
1 tbsp pine nuts
½ tsp salt
¼ cup olive oil
¼ cup parmesan

Tear basil into pieces.  Dice garlic.  Put basil, garlic, pine nuts, and salt into food processor.  Process, streaming in the olive oil.  Remove from food processor and fold in parmesan.

Makes enough for one pound of pasta.
