I have a blender but not a good processor. Will this work with a good blender and when does the oil go in, at the start?

I love to grow my own herbs and this pesto sauce is wonderful, I also freeze it in ice cube trays and it's there when I need it.

I make this in my Vitamix. Be sure to add the oil first, then dump in everything else. I use some basil stems as well as the leaves. Yummy!
