Pesto Potatoes

I was trying to come up with a good potato recipe to go with our dinner one night and I threw this one together. I had gotten some pesto at a good price, and had it on hand. I think it turned out really good.

Red potatoes (one per person)
1/4 C olive oil
3 tablespoons of pesto
1 tablespoon fresh chopped garlic
sea salt

Wash and quarter the potatoes. Place in a baking dish.
In a separate bowl, add pesto, garlic, and olive oil. Blend well and pour over potatoes. Stir well so that all of the potatoes are coated. Sprinkle with sea salt. Cover with aluminum foil. Bake 350 degrees about one hour until done.

Note: sea salt really does give a different flavor to the dish. If you don't normally use it, try it!
