Pesto Salsa
pesto sauce 
 
 
some say using a blender rather than a food processor results in a 
smoother puree. when combining pesto with pasta, ligurians mix a small 
ladle of the cooking water into the pesto just before adding the 
noodles; this dilutes the concentrated sauce and helps it adhere to the 
pasta. 
 
4 cup  fresh basil leaves (from about 3 large bunches)
1/2 cup  virgin olive oil
1/3 cup  pine nuts
2   garlic cloves
1/4 cup  freshly grated parmesan cheese
1/4 cup  freshly grated pecorino sardo or parmesan cheese
1 tsp  coarse salt
 
combine first 4 ingredients in blender. blend until paste forms, 
stopping often to push down basil. add both cheeses and salt; blend 
until smooth. transfer to small bowl. (can be made 1 day ahead. top 
with 1/2 inch olive oil and chill.) makes about 1 cup. 
 
that's it!
