Pesto..the taste of summer

We like pesto!  It's my favorite summer easy to pick some basil and throw it in the food processor with some garlic, olive oil, and Parmesan cheese.  I have substituted walnuts for the pine nuts in a pre-Eleanor life, but have found that no nuts are needed.  It's still wonderful with even fewer ingredients.

I don't measure, and it never turns out quite the same way twice.
2 c basil
2 garlic cloves
1/4 c olive oil
1/4 Parmesan cheese
Couldn't be easier!  Throw everything in the mini food processor and whir until the desired consistency.

For a bit of variety in the next few days, I am planning on topping pizza with pesto and roasted vegetables.
