Panfried pesto potatoes
First of all thank you for all the support from everyone :). And also Want to wish all my muslim readers a very Happy New Year.
I love pesto, this is a recipe I saw once on tv by a british chef, Jo Pratt and its a great way to jazz up potatoes. Its great as a side with roast chicken or sausages or even on its own :).
2 tbsp pesto
A red chilli or a dried chilli finely chopped ( optional)
1. Peel and cut your potatoes into large pieces. Boil in lightly salted till cooked through but not like mushy, just cooked through. Drain and set a side.
2. Heat a large frying pan , add olive oil, about 2-3 tbsp . Tip your potatoes into your pan and the pesto. Toss around , leave it alone a few times so the potatoes brown a little, then toss again.Stir in the chilli i using and toss it around. Taste , add salt if necessary.
Serve, goes well with chicken and meat dishes.
