Mediterranean Pasta

So this is a fusion of an on-line recipe and a menu item at La 
Madeleine’s.  And I absolutely adore it.  Enjoy! 

3 cups fresh basil leaves
1 1/2 cups chopped walnuts
4 cloves garlic, peeled
1/4 cup grated Parmesan cheese
1 cup olive oil
salt and pepper to taste
1/3 jar black olives
1/3 can/jar marinated artichoke hearts
baby roma or cherry tomatoes


pesto sauce:
In a food processor, blend together basil leaves, nuts, garlic, and cheese. Pour in oil slowly while still mixing. Stir in salt and pepper.

cook pasta, cover with pesto sauce, olives, artichoke hearts, and tomatoes
