Rocket and spinach pesto pasta

image

I had some spinach and rocket that I wanted to use up so thought I’d try making pesto…  Success!   Tasted pretty good for a first time – no recipe try 🙂
Warning – no measurements ahead!!

Rocket & spinach pesto pasta

I used a stick mixer with chopper attachment. 
Toast a handful or two of pine nuts in a small saucepan.
Blend the pinenuts in the chopper with the rocket, spinach and some garlic.  Once its nicely processed, add plenty of parmesan cheese and olive oil and blend until you reach the desired consistency. 
Toss through your choice of pasta.   Handy hint is to reserve some of the water from the pasta.  This helps toss the pesto through the pasta.  Just add as needed.  Sprinkle with more parmesan and enjoy!
