    1. Heat a frying pan over high heat and toast the pine nuts without  oil, until golden brown. Keep aside.

    2. Using a mixer or blender, combine the pine nuts,  garlic, basil, parmesan and olive oil. Sprinkle with pepper and salt and mix/blend until the pesto has the desired thickness. Add additional oil to make the pesto thin and runny if you like, and bring to taste with salt and pepper.

    3. Add your pesto to pasta, pizza, salad, baked bread, meat, bruschetta or use it as a dipping sauce just to name a few ideas!
