Added April 11, 2014|Category: Sauces


  • ¼ cup Mia’s Kitchen Extra Virgin Olive Oil
  • 2 cups of fresh basil leaves
  • 2 garlic cloves
  • 2 tbsp pine nuts
  • ¼ cup grated parmesan
  • ½ tsp sea salt


  1. Put pine nuts, garlic cloves, parmesan, sea salt and 1 cup of basil in a processor. Process while slowly adding olive oil and basil leaves. Process until desired consistency.

Suggestions: When storing, place in a storage bowl and add more olive oil to the mix so that there is about a centimeter of oil on the top of the sauce. This will prevent the top from burning in the fridge.
