"Simply by adding pesto to boiled potatoes then mashing, adds a delicious alternative with a hint of colour to the usual mash - and guess what - the kids just love it too! Try using different kinds of pesto. You could also add some sun-dried tomatoes and top with a little grated cheese and black pepper."

These were good mashed potatoes; I did have to up the amount of milk some, and then ended up putting in some sour cream too. Served them with Beef, Burgundy Style, Buttery Cooked Carrots, & Zesty Marinated Asparagus, all from this website and it was a very nice combination. Thank you!

This was another great way to use up our large basil plants. I used olive oil instead of butter and doubled the pesto. I used the 'Simple Garlic and Basil Pesto'recipe from this website. I found they needed a little extra salt (though this may have been due to not using butter). Thanks!

Pretty yummy! I like the flavor of pesto so I used more of it (3 tablespoons for 2 yukon gold potatoes), and a couple of handfuls of pecorino romano cheese, and a couple of pinches of salt and pepper. Great way to use up extra pesto!
