Preheat the oven to 220°C/200°C fan-forced. To prepare the ingredients, chop the potatoes into 2 cm chunks (unpeeled) and wash the baby spinach.


Place the potato on a lined oven tray and toss in 1 tablespoon of the olive oil. Season with salt and pepper and roast in the oven for 35-40 minutes or until tender and golden. Transfer the hot potato to a large bowl and add the baby spinach. Toss so that the hot potato begins to wilt the baby spinach slightly. Add the traditional pesto and toss to coat well. Season to taste with salt and pepper.


In the last 8-10 minutes of the potato cooking time heat the remaining olive oil in a large frying pan over a high heat. Season the lamb leg steaks with salt and pepper and then add to the pan. Cook for 2 minutes on each side for medium rare, or until cooked to your liking. Set aside on a plate, loosely covered with aluminium foil, for 5 minutes to rest.


To serve, divide the pesto potato salad and lamb leg steaks between plates. Enjoy!
