Pesto Pasta

1/4 lb. of fresh basil leaves (basically, you need two handsful)
1/3 cup toasted pine nuts (try a health food, or bulk food store)
2 cloves garlic
a lot of grated romano cheese (to taste)
1/3 cup olive oil
salt and pepper (to taste)
Put this all into your food processor, and process until the leaves and nuts are chopped fine. Serve over your favorite pasta. We like fusili bucati, the kind that look like long goldilocks curls, but fettucine or linguini work good too, or even plain old spaghetti if you have to...:) You can also use parmesan if it's more to your taste, although the romano is pretty yummy. You really don't have to stress too much about measurements with this; more or less of anything won't hurt. Lastly, this is especially good the next day if you have leftovers...
