Pesto Mashed Potatoes

I don't think there is really a recipe for mashed potatoes. It is just steps. So pesto mashed potatoes isn't really a recipe but more of an idea.

Ethan and I went to the Bellagio Buffet years ago and they had pesto mashed potatoes. Of course, Ethan wanted to go home and try it and of course it was fabulous and eventually it became a staple on his catering menu. For being so good, it is too easy. Make your mashed potatoes like you normally would, but add a few spoonfuls of fresh or jarred pesto. And presto! You have a fancy twist on regular mashed potatoes.

Ok, you had me at mashed potatoes. But pesto mashed potatoes? That sounds so good it's almost obscene.

I absolutely love you're site. I'm so glad I stumbled upon it. You have inspired me to want to cook again. My family thanks you.

All my comments will have to do with how lame it is that you post photos of stuff you're not in my kitchen making for me right now.
