Blend the rocket, parsley, salad onions, lemon juice, pine nuts, olive oil, herbal salt and pepper until you have reached a pesto consistency.

Taste and add extra seasoning if needed. Place the flour or maizena in a pot on the stove and slowly add the milk, stirring continuously. The sauce will thicken when the flour cooks in the milk – it should take about 10 – 15 minutes.

Add the pesto to the white sauce and stir through. I added about a teaspoon of cinnamon and some paprika for extra flavour.

Pour over the gluten-free gnocchi and bake in the oven for 15 – 20 minutes.
