Red Roasted Potatoes

Roasting red potatoes is one of my favorite way to prepare them. Some fragrant rosemary, fresh or dried, gives these potatoes a distinctive but subtle taste. This dish is simple to prepare, yet elegant in color and flavor. It's a wonderful addition to any menu. —Margie Wampler, Butler, Pennsylvania

    I love roasted potatoes because they're so simple to prepare, and I think a side dish should be easy. This recipe is exactly that and full of flavor. Of course, I didn't measure my seasonings, I just throw them in there until it looks right to me. As far as garlic goes, I used a 6 large cloves of garlic, and I pressed them instead of mincing them. I think pressing the garlic in a recipe like this gives it more garlic flavor. We love garlic, so more is always better! I served it alongside Meatloaf and some green beans.

    Excellent and easy. I made these with halved red fingerling potatoes and sprinkled grated Parmesan on them as soon as they came out of the oven. Perfect side dish to grilled pork chops! These will be making repeat performances in my kitchen!

    I made these last week, as a side with kielbasa. For a final glaze, I tumbled them through the skillet I'd cooked the sausage in. Delicious!

    These are really easy, and very tasty. It was a great side dish with steak and asparagus. Love it. I did use a cookie sheet to get them crispier.
