Preparation

Add potatoes to a large pot and cover with water. Add salt and bring to a boil for 15 minutes or until potatoes are tender.

Place basil, garlic, pine nuts, and Parmesan into a food processor.

Add oil and pulse until mixed, then add any salt and pepper to taste.

Meanwhile, place milk and butter in a small sauce pot and heat over low heat until butter is melted and milk is steaming.

Once potatoes are cooked, strain and transfer to a medium mixing bowl.

Using a potato masher, smash potatoes with milk and butter mixture and season with salt and pepper. Stir in pesto mixture.
