Pasta with rocket pesto


Rocket pesto is a very tasty yet light pesto which I like to make during these warm days of spring...Summer is still a bit far this year I think, because days are a little bit cold and rainy, but weather forecast says we'll have better weather from it was sunny too, hope it holds!
But now, I am going to give you the recipe of this very easy sauce..All you need is:
  • 1 garlic clove
  • 1 glass of extra virgin olive oil
  • 50 gr Parmesan cheese (grated)
  • 50 gr Pecorino cheese (grated)
  • 50 gr pine nuts
  • 100 gr rocket
  • salt
It is really easy to make, you just have to take your mixer and...
  1. Set aside some rocket leaves and pine nuts, to garnish your dish ( I only used the leaves)
  2. Put all the ingredients in the mixer + half glass of oil, and start it at the low speed.
  3. Add the last half of the olive oil and mix at high speed.
  4. Garnish your pasta with the leaves and the pine nuts and of course the sauce!

Of course I used the rocket I had in my plot, it's so good! 
  Here's the pesto:

I hope you like the dish of today!
