  1. In a food processor, combine all ingredients except the oil. Pulse until a thick paste forms. With processor on, add oil in a slow stream until mixture is well combined.

  2. Transfer to an airtight container. Press plastic wrap directly onto pesto (to keep basil from browning). Cover with lid; refrigerate up to 4 days or freeze up to 2 months.
