  • To make pesto; pulse all ingredients together except olive oil, potatoes and parmesan cheese. Slowly add 1/4 cup of olive oil while pulsing the ingredients. Add parmesan cheese and pulse again.
  • Wash and Cut the potatoes in halves lengthwise or fourths depending on the size. The idea is to keep the potatoes in halves as much as possible so as to have flat surface for topping basil pesto. Arrange potatoes on a baking sheet lined with parchment paper. Drizzle 2 tbsp oil and salt and black pepper on potatoes. Bake at 400 degrees for 45 minutes or when potatoes are soft & browned. I prefer to brown these starchy treats to the point that these stick to the foil and skin is slightly crispy.
