Pesto Roasted Potatoes

So I made this up as a way to use up that little bit of pesto that sits in my refrigerator. I always have half bottles or less of condiments from all my random recipes, so I like to use up those "bits" to free up some frig space!

It made the house smell great while it was baking, and it was a great side dish that didn't require a lot of last minute work. Enjoy!

Pesto Roasted Potatoes

4 medium baking potatoes, peeled and diced
2 tablespoons prepared basil pesto

Preheat oven to 475 degrees F. In a large bowl, combine potatoes and pesto. Stir until evenly coated. Place potatoes in a single layer on a roasting pan or baking sheet.
Roast for 20 to 30 minutes in the preheated oven, turning occasionally to brown on all sides.

  1. I'll vouch for this recipe. It's potatoes at their best :)

  2. I never would have thought to do that! I'm going to use some pesto for another dish here soon, I'll be sure to use the leftover pesto for this!
