    1 1/2   c            Basil leaves, fresh
    2                    Garlic cloves, peeled (may
                         -use up to 5 cloves)  *
      1/4   c            Pine nuts
      1/4   c            Parmesan cheese, fresh grate
      1/4   c            Lemon juice, fresh squeezed
 
   Put the basil, garlic, pine nuts, and parmesan cheese in a blender or food
   processor. Turn the machine on and drizzle in the lemon juice. Continue to
   puree until a smooth paste is formed.
   * The amount of garlic you use is a matter of personal taste.  Also, some
   garlic is more pungent.  So start perhaps with 2 medium cloves, then
   taste, and add more if, as I do, you like a strong, garlicky flavor.
   Makes 3/4 cup pesto
