The king of all sauces out there.
4 cups basil leaves
5 large cloves of garlic
0.5 cup hazelnuts
1.3 cups extra virgin olive oil
1 cup freshly ground parmesan
Wash and drain the basil leaves. Pat dry. Add to a food processor, along with the garlic and the nuts. Pulse until chopped.
Add 1 cup of oil, puree until smooth. Freeze at this point, topped with the remaining oil. If eating fresh, then add the cheese, remaining oil and season with salt and pepper.
