STAR Fresh Pesto

Fresh Basil
Basil is in season and we just love using it in all sorts of recipes. One of our favorite thing to do with basil is to use it in pesto. It can be used with chicken, fish, pasta, baked potatoes, or use as a spread for sandwiches
Fresh Pesto made with STAR Garlic Infused

Ingredients
2 cups fresh basil leaves
1/2 cup STAR Family Reserve Olive Oil with Roasted Garlic
1/3 cup pine nuts
1/2 cup freshly grated Parmesan-Reggiano or Romano cheese

Combine the basil in with the pine nuts in the food processor and pulse a few times. Slowly add the STAR Family Reserve Olive Oil with Roasted Garlic in a constant stream while the food processor is on. Stop to scrape down the sides of the food processor with a rubber spatula.
