Oven-Roasted Potatoes

Patate al Forno


In this recipe, garlic is minced with sea salt and fresh rosemary. It's great for Easter.


6 or 7 red-skinned potatoes, washed

3 cloves garlic, peeled

Leaves from 2 sprigs fresh rosemary, or 1 tablespoon dried

1/2 teaspoon fine sea salt

1/2 cup Filippo Berio Extra-Virgin Olive Oil

Coarsely ground black pepper to taste


Preheat the oven to 350ºF.

Cut the potatoes and into 1-inch chunks.

Mince the garlic with the rosemary and sea salt until the mixture is almost a paste. Set aside.

In a 14- by 9-inch baking dish, mix the olive oil and garlic paste. Add the potatoes and coat well with the mixture. Bake for 35 to 45 minutes, basting frequently with a brush, until the potatoes are golden brown. Sprinkle with pepper and serve immediately.

    Haven't had a chance to try this recipe but will in the very near future and I am sure my husband, Frank, and I will thoroughly enjoy this as we have so many of your receipts. Thanks a million for all your knowledge.
