The basil, parsley, and mint in our aerogarden^ were growing tall. I cut them back and put 2 cups worth of the freshly cut leaves into the food processor with 4 cloves of garlic, a 1/2 cup of good parmesan cheese, and a heap of pinnoli nuts. I set phasers to stun and started drizzling in a 1/2 cup of olive oil. Then, drunk on the heady odors of basil and garlic, I poured it into a covered container to chill in the 'fridge overnight.
Tonight we had it on rotelle.
It was ambrosia.
