Making it different
Stir in 4 roughly chopped anchovies or 1 tbsp capers with the onion and spinach.


  1. Boil the potatoes for about 15 mins or until tender. Drain, then return to the pan and roughly crush with a fork.

  2. Tip in the onion and spinach leaves. Pour over the olive oil, pesto and lemon juice, season to taste and toss to coat everything in the dressing. Serve warm with sausages, chicken or a steak.
