Roasted Red Potato Salad with Parsley-Pine Nut Pesto

I made a minor change in the recipe. I toasted the pine nuts in a small skillet on top of the stove, rather than heating the oven. Of course, I needed the oven for the potatoes, but if you wanted to use the pesto on grilled vegetables or on pasta, then using the stove top would save you a lot of energy.

Transfer the potatoes to a parchment lined baking sheet and roast for 20 minutes, stirring after 10 minutes. Add the peppers to the baking sheet and stir to combine. Roast for 1 hour, stirring every 15 minutes, until the potatoes are tender and the peppers are roasted.
