Steps

1. Rip the basil leaves up into smal pieces. Slice the garlic. Put all the ingredients into a food processor or blender, and process (in 2-3 batches). Store in jars.
2. The top photo shows this basil sauce mixed with pasta and seasoned with salt and pepper.

Story Behind this Recipe

We received a ton of basil, so I thought I'd turn it into a pasta sauce.
