Not bad, just ok. Was very disappointed, as I fixed these to serve with a pork crown roast and while they looked nice, the taste was e just ok. I followed the recipe as written, though when I put the olive oil on potatoes, thought it looked like a ton, so pour some off and set aside - I did toss the potaoes every 20 minutes as stated - never needed additional oil - again just ok -will not bother with them again - Too much effort for too minor results

I cut the recipe down to 4 potatoes. What to do with the oil is not actually mentioned in the directions for the recipe, but I assume that the potatoes are tossed with the oil before sprinkling with parsley. I'm trying to restrict fat a bit, so I used olive oil in a spray can to lightly coat the potatoes instead. I'm not much of a fan of dried parsley, but recipes that use fresh parsley with vegetables are great and I really enjoyed what the olive oil-parsley combination did for the potatoes. A great dish and so easy for when you have a fair amount of time for roasting but not a lot for preparation.
