Home Made Basil Pesto

I had some fresh basil in my fridge which I knew I wouldn't use up any time soon, so rather than letting it go to waste, I decided to make some pesto... and here is what I used:

1 bunch fresh Basil
Good glug of olive oil
Tablespoon of toasted pine nuts
Salt and freshly ground pepper
Juice of half a lemon

Place all ingredients into a small food processor/handheld coffee grinder (or similar) and blend together.  
Taste the pesto and adjust the salt and pepper/olive oil/lemon accordingly.

Mix through pasta, use on pizza or in cooking!
