1/3 c walnuts
2 c packed, chopped fresh chard
3 cloves garlic, (or more) minced
1/2 c grated Parmesan or Romano cheese
1/2 c extra-virgin olive oil
salt and pepper, to taste
1. Pulse walnuts in a food processor a few times until chopped. Add chard leaves and pulse a few more times. Add garlic and pulse again, until everything is well combined.
2. Slowly drizzle the olive oil into the mixture while the food processor is on. Scrape down the sides every now and then. Once the oil is all incorporated, add the grated cheese and pulse until blended. Add salt and pepper to taste.
Make about one cup of pesto.
