I'm trying to use my microwave more for quick cooking, so this was a great find. Based on the other reviews, I cooked a little longer, about 20 minutes, stirring well after 10 minutes to make sure all the potatoes were evenly cooked. The Italian dressing was a nice coating for the potatoes; no additional butter or seasonings were required at the table.

A lovely simple way to do spuds, mine took a little longer than 15 mins, approx 18 mins but great flavour & great result, thanks!

Good and very easy to make. I followed the recipe as written except I didn't add the parsley as I am not a fan. I love using my microwave and these potatoes cooked up nicely. Mine cooked in the 15 minutes. Quick side dish.
