Tonights dinner was pasta with hand made pesto.  I usually buy the stuff in little jars, but tonight I decided to make it myself.

Really easy to make too.

Using a mortar and pestle crush a clove of garlic with a pinch of sea salt, when thats crushed, add lots of basil, crush this too, then add some watercress and do the same.  Toast some pine nuts and when they are toasted and have an even colour add them to the bowl and crush lightly, you want some crunch in there.  Grate some parmesan into the bowl and add lots of olive oil, needs to be runny, not like the stuff you have in the pots. Finally add rocket to the mix, and stir.

Serve with pasta and lots of parmesan.
