firob, if it's a basil pesto recipe that you're wanting, then here's the one I always use... . .

Robyn Martin's BASIL PESTO
¾ cup tightly packed fresh basil leaves = 45g
1 garlic clove
pinch salt
¼ cup each of olive oil and toasted pine nuts
25g grated parmesan cheese

Place the basil in the bowl of a food processor or mortar. Crush and peel the garlic. Add the garlic to the basil with the salt and half of the oil. Process, or pound with a pestle, to a smooth paste. Add the
pine nuts and remaining oil and process or pound until the nuts are lightly chopped. Add the parmesan cheese and process until mixed. This recipe makes about ¾ cup.
Store extra pesto in the refrigerator for up to a week covered with extra olive oil. Alternatively freeze into small blocks or in ice cube trays. :-))
