I can't fairly give this recipe any stars because I messed it up. I didn't think 1 tsp. of salt looked like enough, so I added a bit more...and my potatoes came out too salty! The salt kind of dissolved in the olive oil, so it was easy to add too much! I am willing to try this again though - following the recipe this time! - and I can say that the potatoes were tender and smelled wonderful cooking.
