I love pesto! Particularly basil pesto. Finding a good store-brought pesto anywhere is almost impossible. I have tried. However, this recipe is my go-to when I want basil pesto.

Salt and freshly ground black pepper.
Fresh lemon juice
Add basil, Parmesan cheese, and garlic to a food processor; chop. Adding olive oil in a thin stream while pulsing ingredients in food processor. Season to taste with salt, pepper, and lemon juice, processing briefly to mix.
