Roast potatoes are an English classic, but these have that herby Italian flavour no one can resist.
These super-simple potatoes are great roasted in a little olive oil. Herbs, garlic and onion add an Italian twist, and for extra flavour you could try adding some cubed pancetta half way through cooking.
750g New/Baby potatoes
5 cloves garlic (leave whole)
1 red onion (peeled and cut into quarters)
A handful of fresh rosemary and thyme
Salt & black pepper to season
2- 3 tbsp of olive oil for cooking
130g cubed pancetta
1Preheat the oven to 200°C / Fan 180°C / Gas 6.
2Wash the potatoes and cut in half lengthways, then add them to the rest of the ingredients in a deep roasting tin.
3Mix well and roast for around 30 minutes, turning occasionally until the potatoes are cooked through and golden. Season to taste and serve.
