½ a clove of garlic, chopped
Sea salt & freshly ground black pepper
3 handfuls of fresh basil, leaves picked and chopped
A handful of pine nuts, very lightly toasted
A handful of freshly grated Parmesan cheese
Olive oil
Squeeze of lemon juice


1. Pound the garlic with a little pinch of salt and the basil leaves in a pestle and mortar or food processor.
2.Add the pine nuts to the mixture and pound again.
3.Turn out into a bowl and add half the Parmesan.
4.Stir gently and add olive oil – you need just enough to bind the sauce and get it to an oozy consistency.
5.Season to taste, then add most of the remaining cheese.
6.Pour in some more oil and taste again
7.Add the lemon juice
8.Keep adding a bit more cheese or oil until you are happy with the taste and consistency.
