I found a pesto recipe with weights in this Chowhound thread.



  1. Boil pasta with a generous amount of salt and drain.
  2. In a food processor, chop basil with garlic, pine nuts, and the oil.
  3. Mix in parmesan manually.
  4. Freshen pasta and mix with the sauce and optionally some pasta water in a large bowl (or in the sauce pan, if it’s large enough).
  5. Serve hot or cold.
