When I buy rocket I always buy more to make this rocket oil.

I´m calling it oil because it´s only parts of a pesto, there is the parmesan cheese and roasted pine nuts missing, and that´s got a reason. A whole pesto with all the ingredients goes bad much quicker than without cheese and nuts. Apart from that I like to add these ingredients just before eating - tastes better in my opinion!

I use this rocket oil for many dishes, the known spaghetti with pesto, of course, then there would be a salad made of tomatoes, mozzarella and a dressing made with this oil, several sauces and ragu´s, you can also find it used with asparagus if you look through my recipies.

I will add more and more recipies in which I am using this oil, so check on my blog every now and again!
