Fresh Pesto Sauce--YUM! #recipe

I love the tastes of summer.  One of my favorite summer recipes is for fresh Italian Pesto sauce.  It can be added to grilled steak or chicken, pasta or sandwiches.  Here is the classic pesto recipe I use that I have had for years.  I don't recall exactly where I got this recipe.

Pesto Sauce

1 cup chopped fresh sweet basil leaves
1/2 cup fresh grated imported Parmesan cheese
1/2 cup chopped fresh parsley
1/2 cup pine nuts
1/2 cup Extra Virgin Olive Oil
1 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon ground pepper
3 cloves garlic

Place all ingredients in a food processor or blender.  Process until smooth.  Sauce stays fresh in the fridge for about a week or you can freeze for later use.  If freezing, you can freeze in ice cube trays and just thaw what you need.
