No small food processor? Chop the pesto ingredients finely, put in a bowl, then work in the oil with a wooden spoon.
Make the pesto up to 12 hours in advance and keep covered in the fridge.
Pick a dry white witha herby hint, such as an Italian gavi, or make it a white-peppery Austrian grüner veltliner.
