New potatoes with chive pesto

Preparation time: 5 minutes
Cooking time: 17 minutes

1 pound new potatoes, washed and drained
1 tablespoon olive oil
1/4 cup chopped fresh chives
1 tablespoon fresh lemon zest
1/2 teaspoon black pepper

Place potatoes in a large saucepan and add enough water to cover by at least 2 inches; bring water to a boil. Cook over medium heat until fork-tender, about 17 minutes, depending on size of potatoes. Drain. In a large skillet, heat olive oil, and add chives, lemon zest, and black pepper. Add potatoes while still warm, and sauté quickly just to coat, then serve.
