Basil Pesto

1 cup fresh basil leaves, packed
1 clove garlic
1/4 cup pinola nuts (pine Nuts) or walnuts
1/2 cup olive oil
1/4 cup Parmesan cheese

In a food processor, or minichopper (I prefer the latter), finely
chop basil, garlic, and nuts together. Slowly add oil. Blend.
Gradually add cheese until blended.

Toss mixture into hot, cooked pasta and serve immediately.

Note: I am told that you can make pesto from any fresh herb that
you like, just substitute the Basil here for the same amount of
another herb. You could use fresh parsley or oregano.

From time to time, I don't have enough basil in my herb garden to
make a cup so I mix the herbs that are there. I once mixed Basil
and parsley. Its good, but not as good as straight basil.
