Parsley pesto!

This week's vegie box delivery came with parsley and rocket so tonight I made parsley pesto!

I didn't use a recipe, nor write down the quantities I used, but here is an approximation. So simple and so yummy. I was very pleased with the results.

Ingredients
* bunch of parsley, chopped
* a handful of rocket leaves
* a handful of roasted almonds (I didn't have pine nuts on hand. apparently walnuts also work for this)
* 1/3 cup of parmesan cheese
* a few splashes of olive oil (more as needed to help the mixture blend)
* 1 clove garlic

Method
Put all ingredients into the food processor and blend until combined but so that it still has some texture.

And hey pesto! :)

I served it with some penne and steamed brussel sprouts (another new addition to the vegie box). It was absolutely perfect. Perhaps a tad too much garlic - not that there is such a thing - so adjust quantities to suit your own taste.
