Easy Pesto Potato Bake

The only reason Himself knows where the kitchen is located is because that’s where the beers are kept! He is totally & utterly useless when it comes to general cooking but he does have some other attributes……. the man stacks a good dishwasher and he does a mean braai!
We are not fond of huge amounts of meat, our accompaniments are equally important to us, and as per usual this potato bake came about because of what I had in my fridge.
2 largish potatoes
1 onion sliced
125ml fresh cream
½ a jar of Pesto Princess rocket & walnut pesto, obviously you can use any pesto.
Heat oven to 180 degrees and grease a lidded ovenproof dish (or just use Spray and Cook like I did)
Par boil the potatoes (skin on) until a sharp knife goes through with just a little resistance.
Fry the onion gently for 5 minutes or so until it softens.
Chop the potatoes into cubes, arrange with the onions in the dish.
Mix the cream, milk and pesto, pour over the potatoes and onion.
Top with grated cheese, just in case you are wondering why mine is lumpy, whenever I see cheese on special I buy it, grate it and freeze it, works a treat.
Bake covered for 30 minutes, remove lid and bake until the top goes golden and crunchy, about 10 minutes. A tasty potato dish that will accompany most things.
