Not your basic roasted potatoes

Basic roasted potatoes are usually prepared by tossing them together with olive oil, salt and pepper and roasting them in the oven at around 400-425° F. If you’re looking for potatoes with extra flavor, then I highly suggest giving these pesto roasted potatoes a go.

You can also make these by large dicing up some yukon gold or yukon red potatoes instead of buying baby potatoes, it’s a little more economical that way and you still get the same great flavour. Either way, it’s important when dicing your potatoes that the pieces are as close to being the same size as possible. This will ensure even cooking.
