1/2 cup
olive oil
3 tablespoons
pistachios (unsalted)
   
salt (to taste)
3/4 cup

pepper (to taste)

Instructions

In a food processor, combine chopped ramp leaves and pistachios. Process until well blended. Add olive oil through top of food processor in a slow and steady stream. Finally, add the Parmesan cheese and process until well blended.  Add salt and pepper to taste. Refrigerate. Serve tossed into pasta or spread on toast.
