Granny's Pine Nut Pesto is so delish that I'll never buy a pre-made jar of pesto again! Whip some up and keep it in the fridge for all of your pesto needs!
Toast pine nuts by heating in a dry skillet over medium low heat until fragrant. Watch carefully because they will burn shortly after becoming fragrant.
In a blender or food processor, combine basil, cheese, 3 T pine nuts, garlic, salt, and pepper. Cover, and blend with several on/off turns until a paste forms. With the blade running, gradually blend in olive oil.
