Basil Almond Pesto 
my own invention, with less oil and more garlic :) 
2 handfuls of basil leaves {fresh is best!}
2 cloves garlic
¼ cup almonds
1/2 cup grated parmesan cheese
1/3 cup Olive Oil
pinch of salt

Peel and put the garlic clovers in a blender {VitaMix is pretty awesome} and pulse a few times. Add almonds, basil, parmesan, salt and olive oil and blend until smooth. It should blend nicely on low speed if you have enough oil. Add a teaspoon or two more if needed. Serve over your favorite pasta. We love Costco pasta {pictured} -- Pete says it's the best he's ever his life so far. :)
