But I know that a lot of you like specific measurements and so I’ve provided some general guidelines below. Ingredients: Basil Olive Oil Cheese (I prefer Parmigiano Reggiano but Peccorino Romano is also often used. Garlic Salt OPTIONAL Pine Nuts (some people even use cashews or almonds, but do whatever you want) My approximate portions as seen in video: 12 cups of basil 2 cups of olive oil 1 cup of Parmigiano Reggiano (the best cheese!) 2 teaspoons of salt 3 teaspoons of diced garlic Traditional Portions 3 cups of basil 1 cup of olive oil 1 clove of garlic ½ cup pecorino cheese ¼ cup pine nuts salt to taste Wash the basil leaves and spin or pat them dry, the only liquid you really want is the oil Puree the basil leaves with olive oil to make a nice thick syrupy paste. Add Garlic Add Salt to taste Add Cheese

Tomato Basil pasta

2/3 lb your favorite 100% whole wheat pasta, uncooked
5 cups chopped tomatoes
1 tsp minced garlic
3 5/8 Tbs fresh basil, chopped
1 1/3 Tbs olive oil

black pepper and salt to taste

1/2 a lemon
3 Tbs (about 1 ounce) Parmesan cheese, shredded

1. Bring a pot of water to a boil in order to cook pasta. Pre-cook pasta to make preparation even easier.

2. To prepare sauce - combine tomatoes, garlic and basil leaves. Drizzle with olive oil. Add half the parmesan cheese. Season to taste with salt and pepper. Set aside.

3. Prepare pasta according to package directions. When completely cooked, drain. Place hot pasta atop tomato mixture and toss -- it will cook slightly during the toss process.
