An easy homemade versatile sauce that goes with pretty much anything.
Put the basil, parmesan, garlic and pine nuts into a food processor and season well.
Whiz together and with the motor still running, pour the oil in until the pesto thickens.
Store in a clean jar in the fridge covered with a slick of oil to prevent it drying out.
