Roasted Red Potatoes

Here is an easy way to add some color to your plate. Instead of the plain old potatoes, add some bright red ones! This recipe goes great with just about anything and can be made in the oven or toaster oven! If you have a picky "meat and potatoes" kind of person in your life, they will love this along with my Grilled Monterey Chicken! Now this particular recipe serves 2 but, its pretty easy to add more. About 1 1/2 potatoes per person usually works (2 if their small).

4 Red Potatoes, washed, cut to bite sized pieces
Peanut Oil ( Olive Oil works too)
Sea Salt & Black Pepper to taste
1/2 tsp Crushed Red Pepper
Garlic, dried, minced
1 tsp Basil, dried
Parmesan to taste

1) Line tray in foil and spray with cooking spray. Preheat oven to 450.

2) Place potatoes on foil and sprinkle with salt, peppers and garlic. Then drizzle with oil and toss to coat well. (This step can be completed in a plastic zip lock bag for easy coating.)

3) Broil potatoes 15 minutes. Using a spatuala, give them a good stir and return to heat for about another 15 minutes, until the potatoes are browned on the outside and soft on the inside.

4) Remove from oven and sprinkle with basil and cheese. Let rest about 5 minutes and enjoy!
