Top Review by Ginny Sue

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.
