2 cups basil leaves
450g dried spaghetti
1/3 cup Parmesan cheese, grated
3 garlic cloves, roughly chopped

Salt and freshly ground black pepper


In a food processor, mix together pine nuts, basil, garlic and parmesan until mixture is roughly chopped.

While blending basil mixture, add olive oil in a thin stream until mixture is smooth but retains texture. Be careful not to over-process. Season with salt and pepper.
