Rocket Pesto sauce

I can bet there's anybody out there who dislikes eating pasta !! Pasta is my favourite food, I love the creamy, saucy texture, my favourite being rocket pesto sauce. last week I prepared this sauce at home and it turned out pretty good. Following is the basic recipe for rocket pesto sauce you can make varietions too, like  try using walnuts instead of pine nuts, and replace spinach instead of rocket.

50 gm pine nuts
50 gm fresh rocket, stalks included
2 cloves of garlic (crushed)
50gm Parmesan cheese, freshly grated
1 tbs lemon juice
salt to taste
8-10 tbsp extra virgin olive oil(if the sauce is too dry use more oil)
freshly ground black pepper
25 gm pine nuts toasted
Place all the ingredients, expect olive oil in a food processer and blend for 30 seconds or until roughly chopped.
Then slowly pout in the oil and blend until smooth
Toss with pasta, season with pepper and sprinkle with toasted pine nuts and parmesan
