Fresh Basil 6 big handfuls
Olive Oil 6 tablespoons
Pine Nuts 70g (2½oz)
Garlic 3 cloves
Parmesan Cheese 180g (6oz)
Salt pinch
Black Pepper

Lightly chop the washed basil, put it in a blender with all of the other ingredients. Blend until smooth.


Delicious with fresh pasta.


The sauce can be stored in the refrigerator with a layer of olive oil on the top.

If the sauce is made without the cheese it freezes well, the Parmesan can easily be added at serving time.
