3 Tbsp olive oil
1 garlic clove
1/2 cup pecorino cheese, grated
salt, pepper, chili flakes to taste

I made the watercress pesto variation of this recipe but I want to make the pesto one now--looks so good! ;-)

Deliciously, wonderfully healthy. I make pesto out of all sorts of things, but I've never tried using kale. This definitely goes on the list.
