Rocket pesto pasta
SmartPoints® value per serving
Pesto traditionally is made from basil but for a tasty twist we’ve added half rocket to give this pasta dish a sharp peppery flavour.

Grated parmesan cheese
⅓ cup(s), (25g)
1 clove(s), crushed
2 cup(s), (60g)

- Cook pasta in a large saucepan of boiling salted water following packet instructions or until just tender. Drain. Return to pan.
