2 cups fresh basil
1 cup pine nuts
4 cloves garlic
1 cup shredded asiago cheese (non-processed parmesan is fine too)
2 t coarse ground black pepper
to taste salt
1/2 cup extra virgin olive oil
cooked pasta of choice (I used angel hair)
Process the first six ingredients in a food processor until uniformly
chopped. Gradually add the olive oil while the processor is running.
You'll definitely want to taste and add things as needed. Consistency
will be a fairly thick paste. Serve over hot pasta (our favorites:
ribbed penne or capellini). Serves four (or two if you like your pasta
saucy - and who doesn't?).
