This is one of my favorite side dishes, from an issue of the Vegetarian Times. I vary the herbs almost every time I make it, but have posted it as written here. Preparation and cooking times are estimates, sometimes the vegetables seem to cook faster. Just be sure not to overcook the spinach! :)

This was really good, even though I made some adjustments. I used about a lb of small new potatoes, quartered lengthwise, 1 med onion and skipped the spinach because the husband is afraid of green things. Since I had to cook them along with the pork roast I was making, I had them in the oven at 350° F for about 1 hour. The husband had seconds and asked me to make them again some time. :-)

Like Ms. Bold, I had to cook my potatoes a bit longer than 30 minutes for them to cook through but other than that, I made the recipe exactly as directed and the end result was absolutely delicious! They were a perfect complement for the veal stew that I made for tonight's dinner.

These were very good roasted veggies. I used a bit more balsamic vinegar, quite a bit of fresh ground black pepper, a good shake of coarse salt, along with about a clove of roasted garlic. I omitted the bay leaf and rosemary and used chicken broth instead of the veggie broth. My potatoes also needed a bit more than 30 minutes to fully cook. I liked the addition of spinach. Would be a tasty side to grilled steaks.
