- In a food processor or blender, pulse the basil, Parmesan, pine nuts, garlic, salt, and pepper together until finely-chopped.
- With the food processor or blender still running, slowly drizzle in the olive oil until it is completely combined. Pause the food processor or blender and scrape down the sides, then pulse again until the mixture is smooth. If you prefer a thinner pesto, add in more oil.
- Serve immediately. Or refrigerate in a sealed container for up to 3 days, or freeze for up to 3 months.
*Salt: If you are using iodized table salt, use just 1/4 teaspoon.
