What do you do with it after you make it?
Kinda on the right track...here is my Pesto For Beginners recipe:
4 0z pine nuts
2 tablespoons minced garlic(more or less to taste)
1/2 cup olive oil(more or less to taste)
1/2 cup finely chopped basil(more for thicker pesto)
1/4 cup red wine (or to taste)
2 tablespoons grated parmesan cheese
Add all items minus parmesan and olive oil. Start processor.
Slowly alternate adding parm and olive oil until well blended and thickened.
Also...for the first time, until you get used to it , Knorr(soup company) has a dry pesto, that as you add oil to on low heat is very easy to use.
