"The recipe doesn't ever tell you what to do with the lemon juice."

"These are good, but the lemon was a little overpowering."

"I did follow the recipe as presented! I did find this side dish to taste quite good-I believe that I'd add more olive oil and use a larger saucepan to brown the potatoes after cooking them. I'd also use more lemon juice for more of a zip!"

"This recipe was quick and easy. Since it called for cooked potatoes, I had to boil them for about 15 mins. Wish I had read that the day before and it would have made the dish much faster. The only modifications I made was a little more parmesan cheese and lemon zest directly on potatoes!! Yummy recipe!"
