Herb Pesto

OK, here is last night's pesto.:

One large or two small garlic cloves minced
2 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil
1 tablespoon ground pine nuts or walnuts
2 tablespoons fresh basil chopped
1 tablespoon fresh chives chopped fine
pecorino romano cheese grated
kosher salt(optional)

Heat olive oil in a nonstick pan, toss in garlic, pinch of salt, a few red pepper flakes and cook until garlic is aromatic(about 3 minutes). Be careful not to burn the garlic as it will get bitter. quickly add the basil and chives and pine nuts. Immediately take off heat and let sit a few minutes. Then pour over pasta of your choice and sprinkle generously with pecorino romano cheese. Enjoy!!
