Basil Pesto
By Patti Wigington

Basil represents protection and love, so why not whip up a batch of magical pesto? Harvest fresh basil from your garden, add a bit of oil, and serve it over pasta -- or just eat it with a spoon!

Prep Time: 10 minutes
Ingredients:
8 Cups fresh basil, washed and packed
1 C Parmesan cheese, grated
1 C olive oil
6 cloves garlic, minced
1/2 C toasted pine nuts or sunflower seeds (optional)
1 Tbs, lemon juice
Salt and Pepper to taste
Preparation:
Put all ingredients in the bowl of your food processor or blender. Mix until all the basil leaves are finely chopped. Serve pesto ladled over pasta, or as a dip for cheese and crackers. This recipe makes about two cups, and will last up to a week in your refrigerator -- if you don't eat it all before then!

Sunflower seeds? Has anybody ever tried pesto prepared with sunflower seeds? If so, I would love to hear if it was good or not. Sunflower seeds would be so much cheaper than pine nuts. I love pesto!
