The trick to getting a creamy pesto sauce is to add the olive oil really slowly. I just drizzle a little at a time into the food processor hole while the machine is on. It sort of whips the oil and makes a creamy dressing. Do this for 2 minutes.
When all of the oil is added, you can add the cheese if you are using it. Blend one more minute and you have delicious creamy pesto sauce.
You can pan fry the pine nuts before adding them to the food processor if you wish, but making it that way takes a little bit more time.
