For true Italian taste excitement, this is a fresh basil sauce that's like eating right in the garden. It's so versatile ... Use as a salad dressing, over pasta, or even over boiled potatoes. However you use it, it's bound to get raves.

What You'll Need

  • 2 cups fresh basil, lightly packed
  • 1 cup olive oil
  • 1 cup grated Parmesan cheese
  • 2 garlic cloves, crushed
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 cup pine nuts, almonds, or walnuts, finely chopped
  • Dash of ground nutmeg (optional)

What to Do

  1. Place all the ingredients in a blender or food processor; blend until smooth.

  2. Store in the refrigerator, covered, until ready to use.

  3. Mix well before serving; use hot or cold.

Notes

Makes about 1-1/2 cups (enough for 1 pound of pasta).
