Whether you need a great side for the upcoming holiday dinners, or just need to whip up something to go along chicken/meat/fish, roasted potatoes always come to rescue you.

I make roasted potatoes on a weekly basis, mainly simply seasoned with salt and pepper and a few fresh rosemary sprigs.

This time, however, I’ve decided to give a bit of a twist to my usual potatoes, and pack them with extra truffle pesto flavour.
