I love making my own pesto, but sometimes life is busy and I don’t have time. My favorite store bought pesto is Kroger’s Private Selection Basil Pesto. It is crafted from a genovese recipe with basil, parmesan and romano cheeses, and garlic. Basically, it tastes just like homemade pesto, without any of the work.

To make the Roasted Parmesan Pesto Potatoes, I toss red potatoes with basil pesto and roast them in the oven for 20 minutes. I remove the pan from the oven and sprinkle freshly grated Parmesan cheese over the tops. The potatoes go back into the oven until they get a nice and crispy.

These potatoes are loaded with flavor and so good! You will be amazed that you only need three ingredients to make them. They are great for busy weeknights or entertaining.

  1. I just bought a jar of this pesto the other day and I’ve been wondering what to do with the rest. This is perfect for the new potatoes from my garden. This is on the menu for the weekend!

  2. Yum! This reminded me I had frozen some garlic scape pesto earlier in the summer, so I got some out and roasted our potatoes with it. Delicious! Thanks for sharing, so simple but so good.

    1. I give the pan a shake when I take them out of the oven to put the Parmesan on. Are you roasting them long enough? They should get nice and crispy!

  3. Had some pesto and an abundance of potatoes – this was quick, easy and my husband said great flavor! My son didn’t want to try it but after he did was actually asking for seconds (not a potato kid)! Great work!

  4. For the newbies like me, maybe add that ‘roasting’ means to cover the tray with foil before putting it in the oven? Because I didn’t, and the potatoes ended up really dry and undercooked…
