  • With processor running,
    stream in olive oil until
    smooth, about 1 minute. If
    pesto is too thick, add more olive oil.

  • Transfer pesto to an airtight
    container and place a layer of
    plastic wrap on top of pesto to
    help prevent browning. Seal
    container and store in the
    refrigerator for up to a week.
