Basil Pesto

Basil pesto is delicious on pasta, pizza, or a dollop in tomato soup. It can be made in season and frozen for the rest of the year.

1 cup extra virgin olive oil
6 cloves minced garlic
2/3 cup grated parmesan or Romano cheese

Step by Step Instructions
  1. Place all ingredients in a food processor and pulverize into a thick paste. If you wish to freeze for future use, omit cheese until thawed. Freeze in ice cubes or in small margarine tubs.
