Pesto is one of my very favorite foods. Tossed with fresh-cooked pasta, or used as a spread, the wonderfully tart flavor of basil shines through.
1) Combine basil and garlic in blender and chop briefly.
2) With the motor running, slowly drizzle in the olive oil.
3) Shut off motor and add cheeses and salt and pepper.
4) Process briefly to combine.
Pesto freezes well.
