Rocket pesto/Pesto od rukole

When I think about making pesto, I see Bella Italia in front of me…and I love Italian food. The best of pesto is that you can make it fast, delicious and you can make hundreds of combination – pasta, gnocchi, risotto, finger food, bread, dip…you name it. Two flavors are most popular – basil pesto and dried tomatoes pesto. I love to add little bit of some new taste, and did use pecorino (sheep) cheese (instead of traditional parmesan cheese) for my rocket pesto – tastes amazing.

-Croatian version-

Jedno od onih jela koji se pripremaju brzo i lagano, a mogu se koristiti u nebrojeno kombinacija. Ja ga najčešće jedem uz tjesteninu s ekstra porcijom sira. Osim toga, pesto je izvrstan u rižoti, s njokima, u pecivima i kruhu ili jednostavno kao dip. Dva su se okusa pesta davno ukorijenila u kuhinji – onaj od bosiljka te od sušenih rajčica. Ja se volim poigrati s različitim vrstama sira, pa je tako u ovom receptu umjesto tradicionalnog parmezana, ovčji sir pecorino….kombinacija je odlična 🙂

Potrebno:

Oko 200 g rukole

Šaka indijskih oraha

3 češnja češnjaka

Korica jednog limuna

Sok pola limuna

Pecorino (ovčji) sir

Maslinovo ulje

Indijske orahe prepržite na vrućoj tavi bez ulja. Sve zajedno, osim maslinovog ulja, usitnite u multipraktiku. Njega dodajte tek kada ste već usitnili prethodno navedene sastojke. Naknadno začinite po okusu s limunovim sokom. Čuvati u dobro zatvorenoj teglici u hladnjaku.
