Wash the herbs thoroughly and roughly chop them.
Add the herbs, garlic cloves, pecan nuts, Parmesan, salt and pepper into a food processor or use a blender.
Once everything is whizzing around, using the spout on the top of the lid, dribble your olive oil into the mixture as it blends.
Taste to check your seasoning. Scrape down the sides of the food processor.
You can adjust the consistency of your pesto by adding more or less olive oil.
Tip: Keep woody herbs to a minimum (rosemary, thyme etc.) as they have a tendency to be overbearing. Thyme is good remove the stalks and only use the leaves.
