To make this basil pesto, crush
Garlic (1 clove)
Pine Nuts (1 Tbsp)
using a mortar and pestle. This is key to a delicious pesto sauce.
Fresh Basil (1 handful)
and a sprinkle of
Sea Salt (to taste)
and crush once again, pressing hard until you get a creamy consistency and the leaves have almost disappeared.
Parmesan Cheese (2)
Pecorino Romano Cheese (1 Tbsp)
and continue to mix through, to make a flavoursome pesto.
Pour a generous drizzle of
Extra-Virgin Olive Oil (as needed)
into the pesto and crush through, adding a little bit at a time to the pesto, as you go. Once done, you can serve it with your favorite pasta.
