2lbs red potatoes, washed and cut into bite size pieces

3 TB olive oil

2 tsp paprika

4 cloves garlic, minced

2 tsp fresh rosemary, chopped

1/2 tsp cayenne pepper


2 c. ricotta cheese


flat leaf Italian parsley


Preheat the oven to 400°F

In a large bowl, place the potatoes, olive oil, paprika, garlic, rosemary and cayenne. Mix thoroughly, until the potatoes are coated evenly. Turn the bowl out onto a sheet pan and arrange the potatoes in a single layer and season with salt.

Bake 20-25 minutes, or until fork tender. If you want more color, broil for 3-5 minutes. Let cool for 5 minutes, then serve on a heaping spoonful of ricotta cheese drizzled lightly with honey and garnished with parsley.
