Ingredients
0.333 cup
toasted Pine nuts
2 cups
fresh Basil leaves (plus extra for garnish)
2 cloves
¾ cup
freshly grated Parmesan cheese (plus extra for serving)
freshly ground Black pepper (to taste)
kosher salt (to taste)
cup
extra virgin olive oil
16 ounces

Preparation steps

1.
Dry roast the pine nuts in a nonstick skillet set over medium heat, shaking the skillet back and forth until the pine nuts are golden brown. Set aside to cool.
2.
Rinse the basil and pat or shake dry. Pluck the basil leaves from the stems and arrange them in a bowl and set aside. Peel the garlic and finely chop and grate the Parmesan cheese.
3.
In the bowl of a food processor, arrange the basil, garlic, toasted pine nuts, Parmesan cheese, and season with pepper and salt. Drizzle the oil over the top and puree until the mixture is smooth and creamy.
4.
Meanwhile, bring a large pot of salted water to a boil. Add the pasta and cook until al dente, 8 to 9 minutes. Drain pasta and mix well with pesto. Garnish with fresh basil leaves and grated Parmesan cheese, if desired. Serve.
