2+ cups loosely packed fresh, washed Basil leaves and flowers
1 large clove Garlic (more if you like it)
fresh ground pepper to taste
1/4 cup olive oil
1/4 cup nuts (walnuts, pine nuts, almonds, or pecans)
1/2 cup grated Parmesan cheese
Combine all ingredients in a food processor or blender, adding enough olive oil to make a smooth, thick paste. Taste, then add salt, if desired.
