These are wonderful potatoes! I used some Mediterranean oregano instead of the tarragon and 3 large red potatoes but otherwise made as posted. The red pepper flakes give it a nice zing. The potatoes were done in about 30 minutes (I cut into 1 inch cubes or so. I know I will be using this recipe many times. Thanks for posting a keeper! Made and reviewed for PAC, Fall 2007 :)
