In a blender, place ½ cup extra virgin olive oil, ½ cup freshly grated Romano cheese, 1 cup lightly-packed fresh basil, 2 medium cloves garlic, ½ cup pine nuts, ¼ teaspoon salt, and freshly ground black pepper, to taste. Blend about 30 seconds, or until you have a smooth sauce. You may gently warm the sauce, but do not cook it. You may toss it with cooked pasta, or spread it over grilled chicken or a lightly sautéed fish fillet. It is very flavorful, and makes a lovely accompaniment to many dishes. Enjoy!!! --Betty
