my favourite (and easy) Pesto recipe

Ingredients for Pesto Sauce:
• 4 cloves of garlic
• ½ cup pine nuts
• 1 Handful or so of Parsley
• 2 large handfuls or so of Basil
• 1 cup of Parmesan Cheese (tempting to use more but we find it makes it all too salty)
• 1/3 to ½ cup of really good Olive Oil
• All tossed in a food processor (rather like cheating – but oh well!)
