Recipe by Lisa Nichols

red potatoes, quartered
fresh rosemary, chopped
sea salt and ground black pepper to taste

This was sooo good! However, I did change the procedure a little bit. I saute the potatoes in oil with some onions and garlic first, then added the rosemary and a little bit of cayenne pepper for heat. Then I tranfered it to a sprayed dish, and baked covered for 15 min, and then uncovered for another 15 min. The potatoes where soft and crispy, and the spinach added wondferful color and texture. Will definaly make again!
This was okay, nothing special. Ate it and it tasted good, but I like anything having to do with potatoes. I might make this again.
Any previous potato recipe that I have rated 5 stars has now become 3. WOW! These are fantastic! We love roasted potatoes in our house, and these have so much more flavour than my usual method of tossing in olive oil, garlic and rosemary. I doubled the recipe and my husband and I were fighting over who got to finish them off! Adding the spinach is a nice touch - even the kids ate it - although I will be making these potatoes frequently with or without the greens. Maybe using the small red potatoes is the secret here; they were so soft and creamy tasting but held their shape nicely. And for sure the fresh ground sea salt and black pepper are a must. I shredded some asiago cheese over them before serving, as it was the hardest cheese I had on hand. I forgot the drizzle of olive oil, but they didn't need it. Fabulous potatoes, Lisa! Thanks for an awesome recipe!
These potatoes are phenomenal! I increased the recipe to use 2 lbs of tiny red potatoes, and used a 10 oz package of fresh baby spinach. It looked like a lot of greens, but wilted down to the perfect amount. I didn't have any rosemary, but this recipe doesn't need it. Freshly grated parmesan cheese sprinkled liberally on top is the crowning glory. This one will definitely be a staple at my dinner table from now on!
I wanted these good and golden brown, so I increased the oven temperature to 425 degrees. I gave them a stir midway through the roasting time. When I tossed in the spinach I found it wilted quickly, so returning the pan to the oven wasn't even necessary. This was extraordinary, simple as that.
This was very good. I made a few changes, though. I used regular potatoes because that is all I had. I steamed them for a few minutes after cutting them up to start the cooking process. I used extra garlic. (My husband said to use even more next time!) I cooked them covered in the oven for about 20 minutes then uncovered them for another 15-20 minutes so they wouldn't dry out and get hard. I drizzled a little olive oil after tossing the spinach with the potatoes. Good. I will make these again.
This side dish is absolutely wonderful! We loved it and the addition of spinach was brilliant! The combination worked beautifully. I'll be making this time and again since it works well alongside just about everything! I did add slightly more spinach than the recipe called for because the first time I made it I found the spinach wilted away and there was barely any left. Thanks for sharing such a simple but great recipe!
Perfect! Using "small" red potates is the key along w/ "ceramic" dish. Excellent dish!
