Place basil leaves in small batches in food processor and blend until well chopped (do about 3/4 cup at a time). Add the pine nuts and garlic and blend again. Add the olive oil and crÃ¨me fraÃ®che and blend again until it forms a thick smooth paste. Serve pesto with cruditÃ©s. To make cruditÃ©s, chop a selection of raw vegetables into long thin batons, such as cucumber, pepper and carrot.
