  • 1-2 lbs russet potatoes
  • 1 10 oz jar Pesto
  • 3/4-1 cup grated Parmesan cheese


  • Scrub and wash the potatoes, pat dry, and (leaving the skins on) roughly chop them up into ‘chunks’.
  • Place the cut potatoes in a large zip-locking bag. Add the pesto sauce to the bag as well, seal, and shake everything around until all of the potatoes are evenly coated.
  • Pour the pesto potatoes out onto a baking sheet and spread them out evenly. Sprinkle the Parmesan cheese over top.
  • Bake at 450 degrees for 25-30 minutes, or until potatoes are golden.
