    2 cups basil
    Half cup olive oil
    half cup parmesan
    couple spoonfuls of pine nuts (you can use walnuts if you want)
    a clove or two or garlic
    a squeeze of lemon
    you can salt it a bit more if the parmesan hasn't done the trick

          if you don't live near the frozen north, walnuts are a good substitute to pine nuts

            Half of this video is good.
            Half of this video insists upon itself.
            I recommend only watching the good half.

                                    I used to think traditional pesto wasn't made with parm or other cheeses... It turns out that I'm just very lactose intolerant with a boring memory. However, I can vouch that if you do make pesto without any cheese, it still turns out extremely good tasting. All thanks to the legendary basil. Hall hail basil, our new herbal god. (But seriously, for other lactose intolerant/allergic to dairy people, if you cut the cheese out you don't need to really alter anything about the recipe. It sincerely feels optional, which is blasphemous for me to say but w/e).

                                                                      Also, real pesto is made from the liquid contained in the basil leaves, so if you chop them you'll just make an oil sauce with minced basil, that's why you need a mortar and pestle, to extract the basil essence

                                                                      The ingredients alone don't make the recipe
