There are so many types of pesto available now; choose basil, sundried tomato, coriander or porcini pesto - 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.
Forgive me if Im wrong but isnt one of the ingrediants for pesto pine nuts?? Therefore this recipe is not nut free - 17 Aug 2008

Very enjoyable. Just be careful not to let the strength of the pesto you choose overtake that of the mash. - 07 Jul 2010
