Rocket & almond Pesto recipe

Chef Antonio’s Tagliatelle with Almond & Rocket Pesto

Everyone will be familiar with the traditional and quintessentially Italian ‘basil pesto’ but at Ristorante Rinuccini, Chef Antonio loves to create dishes with his special twist on Italian classic flavours! Rocket is a delicious peppery salad leaf, often mixed into salads with goat’s cheese, olive oil and other mesclun leaves. Rocket, known as rucola in Italy, is in abundance in Irish gardens this time of year; however, we get our organic rocket from one of our supply partners, Vincent Grace, who grows it in the nearby town of Callan in Co. Kilkenny. Chef Antonio has created this fantastic dish, ‘Tagliatelle con Rucola é Mandoria’ for you to try at home! Read more
