Ingredients

  • 1 pound orecchiette (you can use any kind; spaghetti also works really nicely with pesto)
  • 2 1/2 cups fresh basil leaves (packed)
  • 3 cloves garlic (your preference)
  • 1/4 cup pinenuts
  • 1 1/2 cups extra-virgin olive oil (good, divided, some is for storing the pesto)
  • kosher salt
  • freshly ground black pepper
  • 1 cup grated pecorino (freshly, or Parmigiano-Reggiano, I used a Parmesan, romano & asiago cheese blend that I already had here at home)
  • 1/4 cup walnuts (optional)
