This literally takes less than 10 minutes, I can do it in 5 now because I always have these ingredients on hand!
YOU WILL NEED A FOOD PROCESSOR, VITAMIX OR FOOD COPPER FOR THIS!
Place the basil leaves and pine nuts in a food processor and pulse several times. Add the garlic and the cheese and pulse several more times scraping down the sides as needed. Turn on the processor and slowly drizzle in the oilve oil. The slow drizzle is so that the ingredients can emulsify together and keep the oil from separating, but if it does, just stir it up before using. Keep stopping to scrape down the sides as needed. Add salt and pepper to taste.
