Pesto with aromatic herbs

Clean the herbs and dry them well; detach the leaves from the stems. Peel the garlic. Wash and dry the piece of yellow pepper; eliminate any seeds or white filaments; mince. Put the herbs and the pepper pieces in the blender. Put the rest of the ingredients except the olive oil and mix the minimum necessary (if you mix too much you will raise the temperature modifying the taste: you don't want that). Add the oil and mix slowly. If the pesto is too thick you can add some olive oil or a few spoonfuls of the water used to cook the pasta before serving.
