You may also need:
Blender, Bowl, Food Processor, Kitchen Knife, Spoon
Put first four ingredients into bowl of food processor in order given: mash as many basil leaves in as you can, just as long as you leave a few inches of space at the top of the bowl, then add garlic, slice up the butter on top, and dump the cheese on top of that.
Pulse and gradually add olive oil until mixture is the consistency of thick paste. (Taste at this point and see if it needs more of anything.)
Add nuts and continue to blend.
Once done, spoon into jars and keep in fridge until ready to enjoy.
