Recipe: Perfect Pesto

This recipe produces a very bright green, fresh pesto. It's versatile as a pasta sauce, sandwich spread, bread dip, salad dressing, or condiment for your favorite meat.

2 c. fresh basil leaves
1/4 c. grated parmesean cheese
1/2 c. extra-virgin olive oil
1 tablespoon lemon juice
1/4 tsp. red chile flakes
1/4 c. dry toasted pecans, chopped
1 small clove of garlic

Whirl all ingredients in a small food processor until smooth. Add more olive oil if you prefer a thinner sauce.

Store in an airtight jar in the refrigerator.
