Recipe Directions for PESTO GENOVESE_ Raw

Place basil leaves and garlic in food processor or blender and process until leaves are finely chopped. If you need to add some of the olive oil to process the basil. Add nuts and process until nuts are finely chopped. Add cheese and process until combined. With the machine running, add olive oil in a slow, steady stream. After the oil is incorporated, turn off the machine and add salt and pepper to taste. If not using immediately, store in an air-tight container with a thin coating of olive oil on top to keep the sauce from turning dark. Pesto will keep well in the refrigerator for a week or more. You can also freeze it for up to one year. This recipe yields approximately 3-1/2 to 4 cups.
