1 ½ Cups Basil (packed into a measuring cup)

½ Cup Walnuts or Pine nuts

6 -8 Cloves Garlic

1 Qt. Vegetable or Chicken Stock

Salt and Pepper to taste.
Place the first 3 ingredients with enough stock to blend, in blender or food processor. Blend until smooth. Pour the paste into the stock to warm or serve cold. Serve with a sprinkling of good grated Parmesan and or Romano Cheese. Note: Parsley may be used as a substitute if you don’t have enough basil.
