Ingredients

  • 0.5 loaf bread french
  • cups basil packed
  • cups basil packed
  • clove garlic 
  • 0.3 cup pinenuts 
  • 0.3 cup pecorino cheese 
  • tablespoons olive oil 
  • servings salt and pepper to taste
  •  bosc pear 

Equipment

  • food processor
  • bowl
  • baking sheet
  • oven

Directions

  1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Slice French loaf into 1/2-inch-thick slices, and brush (or spray, if you have one of those nifty Misto things) with olive oil.
  2. Place slices on baking sheet and toast in oven for 10-15 minutes, or until edges are a deep golden brown.
  3. Remove from oven and set aside.
  4. While those are in the oven, make your pesto. In a food processor, combine basil leaves, garlic clove, pine nuts and Romano cheese. Pulse until pesto is coarse in texture, like coarse sand.
  5. Add in olive oil and process until fully incorporated. Taste.
  6. Add salt and pepper, if needed. Scrape pesto into a serving bowl or dish and set aside. (You should have about 3/4 cup.)
  7. Spread pesto over crostini and top with pear and fresh ground black pepper, if desired.
