    3      cups          fresh basil
    3                    garlic cloves -- minced
    2      tablespoons   grated Parmesan cheese
    1      cup           black walnuts -- chopped
    1      cup           olive oil
                         black pepper
 
 * The cheese is optional but, if using, use a hard cheese and grate. Use a
 food processor for easiest preparation.
 
      Chop basil leaves in food processor or blender until finely chopped. Mix
      the basil with chopped walnuts, minced garlic and cheese in the processor
      or blender. While machine is running, slowly pour in a thin stream of
      oil. Continue blending until desired consistency. Add black pepper.
