Roasted Pesto Sweet Potatoes

I have a super easy and delicious side for you today - roasted pesto sweet potatoes.  Goodness, my mouth is watering just thinking about it!

This is a recipe from my sister in law.  It seems like it was years ago my mom mentioned Jen making this recipe when she was over one time.  She said how good it was, and that is saying something, because my mom isn't really a fan of sweet potatoes.

When I was staying over a few weeks ago, I asked Jen if she would teach me how to make these potatoes, since I had heard my mom rave about them before.  

The ingredients are minimal, it's as easy as can be, very delicious, and healthy, too!


Roasted Pesto Sweet Potatoes
3 Sweet Potatoes
1-2 Tablespoons Olive Oil
1/2 Container Jarred Pesto (from the refrigerated section)

First, preheat the oven to 375 degrees.  Line rimmed baking sheet with foil.  Peel the sweet potatoes, then dice into bite size pieces.  Add to a bowl, then toss with 1 Tablespoon of olive oil, and the pesto.  The olive oil helps to loosen the pesto so it covers better - if it still seems thick, add in a bit more.  Place on foil lined baking sheet, and bake in the oven for 15 minutes.  Flip potatoes, then back for another 15 to 25 minutes.  Enjoy!
