PESTO SAUCE

3 c. (packed) fresh basil leaves
3/4 c. (packed) freshly chopped parsley leaves
2-4 cloves garlic (depends on your taste preference)
1/2 c. pine nuts or walnuts
1/2 c. olive oil
3/4 c. grated Parmesan cheese

Place all ingredients in the blender or food processor, except the cheese, which is added after the first ingredients are pasty; and then blended again briefly. Serve this on hot pasta, boiled potatoes, green beans, sliced tomatoes, corn-on-the-cob, steak, fish, or mix with yogurt as a dipping sauce. Serves 6.
