Preparing In The Kitchen
  1. Preheat the oven to 200 °C.

  3. Drain the potatoes and place them on baking sheet. Let them cool down for few minutes.
  4. Now we need to smash potatoes but bot using the masher as we literally just want to press them down. You can use a mug and press piece by piece or use another tray which you will place over potatoes and equally press down.
  5. Sprinkle over salt and pepper to taste, drizzle olive oil, add garlic powder and sprigs of rosemary. Mix all together gently with your hands.
  6. Place baking tray with potatoes in preheated oven and roast until golden, 20-30 minutes.
  7. Once potatoes are done, remove them from the oven, drizzle over the basil pesto and you are ready to serve.
