Ready to go into the oven.

Here’s a super quick side dish to make to go alongside tonight’s dinner.  It takes literally minutes to put together and once it’s in the oven you’re free to finish up your main dish, get little hands washed  for dinner or even set the table.


1 1/2 lbs red-skinned potatoes (try to purchase potatoes that are the same size so you’ll get uniform roasting)

1 medium red onion, cut into large chunks

2tbsp extra-virgin olive oil

1 1/2 tbsp chopped, flat leaf parsley

Kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper


Pre-heat oven to 400 degrees.

Quarter potatoes and place into medium-sized mixing bowl.  Add onions into bowl and toss with extra-virgin olive oil.  Add parsley, salt and pepper and mix again.  Spread potato-onion mixture onto a baking sheet.  Roast in 400 degree oven for 30-40 minutes until the edges turn golden .  You can use the tines of a fork to test for doneness on the inside.
