I love Pesto and of the many different recipes I've tried this one is my favorite so far, with so much basil in my garden right now I've made quite a few batches of this.
1/2 cup extra virgin olive oil
1/2 cup grated Parmesan cheese
3 medium garlic cloves peeled
2 cups fresh basil leaves
1/4 cup walnuts
salt & pepper
1. Place all ingredients into the Vitamix container in order listed and secure lid.
2. Select Variable 1
3. Press start and slowly increase to Variable 7
4. Blend for 1 minute, using the tamper to press the ingredients into the blades.
Note: Recipe yields enough pesto to coat 1 pound of pasta.
