Basil Pesto Twice-Baked Potatoes

Potatoes and pesto go so well together that I came up with a new way to mix them. Twice baked potatoes are so convenient as they don't require any last-minute fuss! They are also easy to reheat from the fridge if you make a large batch. If you can't find mascarpone cheese, I'm sure cream cheese would work just fine although it wouldn't give quite the same flavour.
