  • 2 ½ pounds mini new potatoes
  • ¼ cup basil pesto (jarred or fresh-made)
  • Salt and pepper


  • Preheat the oven to 425 degrees F. Line a large rimmed baking sheet with parchment paper.
  • Cut the smaller potatoes in half and the larger potatoes in quarters. Place them on a baking sheet. Spoon the pesto over the potatoes and toss to coat on all sides.
  • Spread the potatoes out in a single layer on the baking sheet. Sprinkle with salt and pepper.
  • Roast in the oven for 15 minutes. Then use a large flat spatula to flip the potatoes over.
  • Spread them out again, and continue to roast another 15-20 minutes until crispy.
