In a medium sauce pan over medium-high heat, place pine nuts in the hot pan to roast for about 5 minutes, stirring occasionally; let them cool down before using.  Put basil, garlic cloves, cheese, and roasted pine nuts into a food processor and blend well.  With food processor running, slowly pour in olive oil and blend until well combined.
