Simple Garlic Scape Pesto

We'll start off with something simple.

• 6-7 garlic scapes, chopped
• approx. 1 c. olive oil
• 1 c. grated pecorino romanao or asiago cheese* (The latter tastes best.)

On our first batch we skipped the cheese, we chopped the scapes in a mini food processor and added olive oil as needed, then we filled some little canning jars and put them into the freezer, mixed with a bit more oil it makes a great dipping sauce.
If you want to make an actual pesto, mix in the grated cheese by hand after the scapes are chopped up.
