A great pesto to serve over pasta, baked potatoes, to use on pizza or a variety of different ways.
Toast pine nuts on a cookie sheet in a 400° oven for 5-10 ,minutes, stirring occasionally.
In a food processor, pulse the basil, pine nuts, garlic, salt and pepper until finely chopped. With it still running, gradually add enough oil to form a smooth and thick consistency. Transfer to a bowl and stir in the cheese. Season with more salt and pepper, if desired.
