Toast the pine nuts in a pan for a minute or two until golden (low heat).
Put basil leaves in a food processor together with about 2/3 of olive oil, garlic, salt & pepper & pine nuts.
Process until smooth (it will take 1-2 minutes).
Now add the Parmesan cheese (or similar) & mix with a spoon or a spatula. Add more olive oil, if needed (you may add more than 90 ml of olive oil – but I prefer putting more oil on pasta, if needed).
Serve with pasta or bread.
Storage: Store in a jar in the fridge (1-2 weeks).
