Ingredients
  Extra virgin olive oil 1⁄2 Cup (8 tbs)
  Freshly grated romano cheese/Parmesan cheese 1⁄2 Cup (8 tbs)
  Loosely packed fresh basil 1 Cup (16 tbs)
  Garlic cloves 2 Medium
  Pine nuts 1⁄2 Cup (8 tbs)
  Salt 1⁄4 Teaspoon
  Freshly ground black pepper To Taste
Directions

In a blender, place ½ cup extra virgin olive oil, ½ cup freshly grated Romano cheese, 1 cup lightly-packed fresh basil, 2 medium cloves garlic, ½ cup pine nuts, ¼ teaspoon salt, and freshly ground black pepper, to taste. Blend about 30 seconds, or until you have a smooth sauce. You may gently warm the sauce, but do not cook it. You may toss it with cooked pasta, or spread it over grilled chicken or a lightly sautéed fish fillet. It is very flavorful, and makes a lovely accompaniment to many dishes. Enjoy!!! --Betty
