With oodles of fresh, spicy rocket popping up all over the garden, I'm bottling it and giving it away to happy friends and relatives. This Rocket Pesto is the perfect end of summer treat mixed into pasta "al dente" or as a green topping on crackers at your next social gathering. A word of warning - if your rocket has a bit of "zing", this pesto will not be a good one for the kids, but it sure is delicious.
