Almond Pesto Genovese

Buona sera, amici. 

I saw some lovely basil leaves (manjericão) at the supermarket this morning and I bought two whole bunch of it :) 

... and made a big pot of pesto sauce ala genovese.

Original recipe is from here.
But here's my mix & match version after watching many food network episodes: 

* 3 cups of basil leaves. washed & blanched for 10 sec.
* 3 cloves of garlic
* 1 cup of fresh almonds, toasted if you prefer
* 1/3 cup of grana padano/ pecorino/ parmigianno
* salt & pepper to taste

How to: 
Mix everything together in food processor till you get your desired smoothness.

I'm one happy pasta-loving girl ;)
