Pesto Alia Genovese is a wonderful sauce that incorporates an amazing blend of flavors. I love the way the medley of ingredients end up in a sinfully tempting sauce! Try this wonderful Pesto Alia Genovese!
  Garlic 3 Clove (15 gm), chopped
  Chopped basil 6 Tablespoon
  Chopped parsley 4 Tablespoon
  Pine nuts 1 Tablespoon
  Grated parmesan cheese 1⁄2 Cup (8 tbs)
  Olive oil 1 Cup (16 tbs)
  Ground pepper To Taste

With a mortar and pestle, pound garlic, basil, parsley, pine nuts and cheese together until smooth. Gradually add oil, whisking between additions. Add enough oil, whisking all the time, to make sauce thick and smooth. Season with pepper.
Note: If made in large quantities, sauce can be made in a blender or food processor. Store in a jar in refrigerator, covered with a layer of oil.
