Pesto Sauce for Lovers


½ cup pine nuts (toasted) plus a bit more for garnish

¾ cupextra-virgin olive oil

1 tsp fresh lemon juice

2 cups basil leaves

1 cup Parmesan cheese (finely grated, 3 ounces/85 grams)

½ teaspoonkosher salt (more to taste)

Place everything but the oil in blender and emulsify. Add oil gradually. Truthfully, sometimes I just add everything at once.

It's the lemon juice that gives it the brightness without the garlic.
