Recipe Tools


1. Put the basil, olive oil, pine nuts, garlic cloves and salt in the blender or food processor, (I use the food processor), and mix at high speed.

2. Stop from time to time and scrape the ingredients down toward the bottom with a rubber spatula.

3. When the ingredients are evenly blended, pour into a bowl and beat in the two grated cheeses by hand.

4. (This is not much work, and it results in a more interesting texture and better flavor than you get when you mix in the cheese in the blender).

5. When the cheese has been evenly incorporated into the other ingredients, beat in the butter (softened to room temperature).

6. Before spooning the pesto over pasta, add to it a tablespoon or so of the hot water in which the pasta has been cooked.
