In a blender or food processor, add the oil, and garlic and grind until you have a homogeneous mixture without any visible pieces of garlic.
Add the oil, pine nuts, salt, and parmesan cheese and grind until a homogeneous paste is formed.
Gradually add the basil and if necessary add a little oil. Grind to a creamy consistency, neither too liquid nor too thick.
Transfer to a container, if you are going to store it, put a light layer of olive oil on top to prevent it from oxidising. Enjoy!
