In a food processor combine basil, garlic, pine nuts, Parmesan and Romano cheeses, and olive oil. Mix until well blended. Taste for salt (depending on the cheeses you are using it may need it or not) and pepper. Mix again.
If you notice the pesto is very thick add a little bit more oil.
That’s it, ready to serve.
