Roasted Purple Potatoes

Last weekend I had the ladies over for lunch and holiday decorating- YES, I decorate in early November. The menu was a sweet potato and roasted onion sandwich and roasted purple potatoes. Here is the recipe for the potatoes. Fair warning- don’t make too many, because you’ll never stop eating them….

6 large purple potatoes (quartered lengthwise)
1/8 cup olive oil
1 tbs garlic (minced or dried)
½ tsp dried basil
1 tsp dried dill weed
½ tsp dried thyme
½ tsp dried sage
½ tsp dried parsley
1 tsp crushed red pepper
Salt and pepper to taste

Toss the oil, potatoes and spices in a bowl, coat well. Place evenly, skin side down, on a roasting pan/baking sheet (I use silpat). Bake at 475 for 25 minutes.

This is a great side dish or an amazing main course when smothered in pesto!
