If like me, you end up with a glut of rocket starting to bolt, try this.

90g Rocket
75g Hazel nuts, roasted in a dry pan, skins rubbed off.
3 cloves garlic.
150ml olive oil.
50g Parmesan or Grano Padano.

Blend, then add salt and pepper to taste. It does freeze, but if you're doing that that, don't add the cheese until it's defrosted.

It's quite strong, so with a simple soffrito of onion, celery and garlic, some sliced courgettes, and a handful of cannelini beans per person, it's enough for a pasta sauce.
