Rita's Freezer Pesto

This makes a great base for lots of dishes. Go to taste on the garlic. I use a food processor, but you could use a blender or make this by hand.  Freeze in amounts you think you’ll use. Or pack into baggies and smoosh the air out. What you want is a flat package. That way they stack nicely in the freezer and you can just push some out of the baggie as you need it.

2 small cloves garlic or to taste

2-4 tablespoons pine nuts or slivered almonds (optional)

3 tablespoons butter

Handful parsley leaves 

4 generous cups basil leaves, packed

1-1/4 cups Parmesan cheese or to taste

1/2 to 3/4 cup extra virgin olive oil

With processor’s motor running, add garlic and nuts. Add everything else and process until smooth.
