Today I decided to prepare a fresh "Pesto alla genovese".
The ingredients are:
40 leaves of fresh basil
1TBSP Parmesan cheese
1 TBSP pecorino cheese
3 TBSP extra virgin olive oil
1 tsp pine nuts
1 clove garlic

Clean the leaves with a cotton towel. Put in a mixer or blender with the garlic, pine nuts and the salt (this keeps the green color of the leaves). Mix all for 1 minute then add the cheese and one spoon of extra virgin olive oil. Mix again for few minutes and slowly add the rest of the oil.
Now your fresh "Pesto alla genovese is ready. I suggest to cook it with Linguine pasta.
Buon appetito!!
