Roasted New Potatoes

This is a supper staple at the St. John house. On steak night I cook these potatoes.


3 lbs. Red B-size potatoes, quartered
½ cup Extra virgin olive oil
1 Tbl Kosher salt
½ tsp Fresh ground black pepper
1 tsp Fresh rosemary, finely chopped


Preheat oven to 350.

Combine all ingredients in a large mixing bowl. Make sure all the potatoes are coated evenly. Transfer to a baking sheet and place in the oven for 1 hour, carefully turning the potatoes with a spatula every 15 minutes.

Serve immediately.
