  1. Pulse the garlic in a food processor until it is finely chopped. Then, add the basil, pine nuts, lemon juice, and water and process to a puree.
  2. Add the olive oil and 3 tablespoons of the Parmesan cheese and pulse until the pesto is smooth, occasionally scraping down the side of the bowl as necessary. Set aside.
