About this recipe: There are so many types of pesto available now so you can choose the type you want depending on the main dish. By simply adding one tablespoon of pesto to boiled potatoes then mashing, it adds a delicious alternative with a hint of colour to the usual mash....and guess what.....the kids just love it too! You could also add some sundried tomatoes and top with a little grated Cheddar and black pepper.
