Place all of the above ingredients except for the olive oil into a food processor and pulse. With the machine still running, slowly add in the olive oil until all of the ingredients are incorporated. Taste for additional salt and pepper if needed.
*This pesto can be used in many ways. My kids like it tossed with mini farfalle pasta and then finished with a drizzle of olive oil and sprinkled with Parmigiano-Reggiano cheese. I also serve it as an appetizer on crostini with
prosciutto, feta and tomato. Lots of options!
