Pesto gnocchi

Nick's sister is coming into town this weekend so we had to scramble a bit to clean up. We are not one of those "when is the house keeper coming" families to say the least. I remembered we had basil to use up and within 5 minutes had this ridiculously easy pesto.
There is no real recipe, but I used the cuisinart to chop together about 1/2 cup e.v.o.o, 1/2 cup parm, 1/2 cup pine nuts, a few cloves of garlic, 2 bunches of basil and some salt and pepper. We had fresh pasta from whole foods which is ready after boiling for a nanosecond so just minutes later we had this:
The extreme close up seems a little pornographic, sorry! I was merely trying to steady the camera on the bowl but it does look tasty enough to dive into haha. I was really delicious and super easy. Now it is time to clean! xN
