CravOn Crinkle Cut Fries and Pesto

Last month I had the privilege of learning all about these wonderful, healthful CravOn fries first-hand from Chef Nikki Shaw herself! At the cooking demo I attended, I was given a coupon for a free bag of fries. I waited for a weekend when everyone was home and baked them (as per the bag directions) and made fresh pesto on the side as a yummy dipping sauce. 

The family loved them! I knew they would!

What's so great about these fries? They are never fried, are gluten free and contain NO artificial anything! That translates into less fat and much more healthy eating. Plus, they actually taste like a real potato. Because they ARE real potatoes. Win! Give these a try with the recipe below. They're totally addictive, and totally delicious.
