Easy Pesto FTW

My outdoor basil plant is truly out of control. Unruly, wild, and nearly untamable. Kind of like my hair right now. Since there’s rain in this weekend’s forecast, I’m going to do something about the abundance of these herbs. PESTO.

2 cups fresh basil (remove the stems)
½ cup pine nuts
3-4 cloves of raw garlic, minced
1/3 cup good extra virgin olive oil
1/2 cup grated parmesan cheese
Salt and cracked black pepper to taste

Puree in food processor. Serve over gnocci.

Feeling festive- matched my socks and ponytail holder with my cup of homemade borscht (actually, it was a coincidence)
