Directions

  1. Heat light cream, salt and pepper over medium-low heat, allow to come to a simmer while working on the basil.
  2. Place basil, garlic, nuts, and cheese in food processor and blend until almost smooth.
  3. Add olive oil in thin stream until emulsifies, while scraping the sides down to blend (emulsify: turns a lighter shade of green).
  4. By this time the cream will have come to a light simmer, add half of the cream to your basil mix and blend, until smooth, add this back to the remaining cream in the pan.
  5. Bring to a light simmer for 5 minute.
  6. Serve! :).
