Rocket Pesto is a less famous variation of its "genovese" brother, but very popular nonetheless. Rocket's pungent taste often adds a twist to simple meals, but also works well with complex ones, and as a free bonus, it's often considered an aphrodisiac (we must have grabbed your attention there!).
HOW TO USE IT
The added organic cashews, as well as the pine nuts turn the pesto into a creamy sauce that will wow your guests on a simple bruschetta, but also to enrich a simple pasta salad or to garnish grilled lamb chops. The options are endless, but we recommend not to heat it: rocket won't enjoy being cooked, and would turn bitter quite quickly.
WHY WE LOVE IT
La Macina Ligure chooses to make this organic pesto without cheese, letting the rocket take the stage. And after trying it, we wholeheartedly stand by their decision.

La Macina Ligure was the very first company we visited back in 2015, well before the website was built or we had a place for the products to be stored. We were welcomed with open arms, showed around the factory and answered every question we had. Who knew there was so much to learn behind these products!
Their mission has always been to bring a piece of Liguria to home all over the world. We are super happy they choose us to be their first importer in the UK. This product is a 100% Gold Beetle Certified™.
