Purple Basil Pesto

Not a new idea I am sure, but looking at the large plant of purple basil I have growing in the garden I have to think about it. What would the colors look like together. The golden brown of the pine nuts, the emerald green of the olive oil, the pale almond color of the Parmesan cheese, and finally the deep purple of the basil. I can only imagine it would be that of an impressionistic painting, the type I love from the classic French artist such as Monet. I will be working on it tomorrow and hopefully have pictures for you soon (only if it turns out good of course).
