2 cups fresh broccoli, cut into chunks
2 cups basil leaves
1/2 cup pine nuts
2 tablespoons olive oil
2 cloves fresh garlic, peeled and roughly chopped
Salt to taste
4 – 5 cups cooked spaghetti or angel hair pasta
Cook noodles according to package directions, set aside. Combine uncooked broccoli, basil leaves, pine nuts, olive oil, and garlic in a blender or food processor. Pulse about 20 seconds. Taste test and add salt to taste shortly before before the basil is rendered as paste. Add 1/2 cup water if desired; I did not add water. Pesto should be very finely chopped but not liquid sauce.
Combine pesto with cooked spaghetti or angel hair, mix until thoroughly combined.
