Sweet Basil Pesto

I have been a little lazy in the kitchen lately falling back on the same old dishes so I decided it was time to try harder especially as Ramadan begins in a couple of weeks. I tried making a pesto with the sweet basil (Rayhan) we grow in the garden it turned out well, but next time I
think I will add more basil. I used a bunch of basil, 2 cloves of garlic, a pinch of salt, olive oil and a couple of tablespoons of toasted pine nuts pounded together in a pestle and mortar.

Does anyone have a recipe I could use sweet basil in they could share with me?
