Shop bought pesto will NEVER compete with the homemade stuff. And using your own basil... I would happily bathe in this.
1 clove of garlic
1 large bunch of fresh basil
50g pine nuts
3tbsp extra virgin olive oil
50g Parmesan, grated
Peel the garlic and grind in a pestle and mortar with salt.
Add the basil and pine nuts and grind to a paste.
Add olive oil and grated parmesan and continue grinding until smooth (you can use a blender if you prefer).
Season to taste. Serve with fresh pasta and top with more parmesan. Seriously simple and seriously seriously good!
