Chop the basil and nuts in the food processor or if you prefer, chop by hand. Add garlic, cheese, and slowly add the olive oil while mixing. Finish with salt and pepper to taste.
If you lack an ingredient, there are ways to modify this recipe. Use cilantro or arugula instead of basil, or if you don't have pine nuts, substitute with other nuts or sunflower seeds. If you are a vegan, try Bob’s Red Mill’s Nutritional Yeast instead of Parmesan cheese.
If you decide on the original or modified pesto, I hope you enjoy every last bit.
