  • 5 to 6 medium russet potatoes
  • Pesto Sauce we get the big jar at Costco
  • Parmesan Cheese


  • Scrub (but don't peel) potatoes and cut into large cubes then place all the pieces in a large plastic bag. Add about 3/4 cup pesto sauce to the bag and shake it around until the pesto is coating all the potato pieces.
  • Pour the contents of the bag out onto a cookie sheet. Arrange the potatoes so they are laying flat then sprinkle with parmesan cheese.
  • Bake at 450 degrees for 25 to 30 minutes, or until they begin to look lightly toasted.
