This is a side dish that I love to make, it goes well with any meat, chicken or fish. The potatoes are creamy with a light crunchiness and it is so simple to prepare. I often add bacon or different fresh herbs, whatever is available at the time.


1 lb of red potatoes
1 teaspoon salt
Fresh spring of rosemary
Fresh ground pepper and salt to taste
1 tablespoon of good quality of olive oil


Boil the potatoes in water with the salt until the potatoes are soft but not falling apart.

Drain and cut the potatoes in half and add the finely chopped rosemary, salt, pepper and olive oil.

Toss gently and place the potatoes facing them up in a pre-heated oven for approximately 15 to 20 minutes at 400 F.

Serve hot or warm.
