O. M. G. (as it were…). This is delicious. Am very impressed that something can taste so amazing with so few ingredients and take such a short time to make.
For two people you need:
1/2 cup pine nuts
handful each watercress and rocket
1 clove garlic
1/4 cup parmesan cheese
1/8 cup grape seed oil
Cook the pasta. Meanwhile toast the pine nuts (yes I know Jamie says don’t bother but I like them toasted and think the heat helps to make the sauce too. So there.). Place the garlic, cheese, watercress, rocket and pine nuts into a mini blender and pulse, shaking it to ensure everything gets done. Add the oil and blend again. I used grapeseed oil as I wanted the individual flavours to come through rather than be drowned out by olive oil.
Drain the pasta and toss through the pesto. Serve with a little extra cheese on the top. Like I said, O. M. G.
