Total time: 
Serves: ¾ cup
  • 1 large bunch fresh basil
  • 2 cloves garlic, smashed and peeled

  • ½ cup extra-virgin olive oil
  • ½ cup freshly grated Parmesan
  • ½ teaspoon kosher salt, plus more for seasoning

  1. Pluck basil leaves from stems (about 2 cups). Wash the leaves in a large bowl of cold water and dry in a salad spinner or pat dry with paper towels.
  2. Put the basil, garlic, and pine nuts in a food processor and pulse until coarsely chopped. With the processor running, gradually add the olive oil and process until the pesto is smooth. Transfer the pesto to a large bowl and stir in the cheese. Season with salt and pepper.
