  • 2 pounds small new potatoes, about 1 1/2 inches in diameter, large ones halved
  • 2 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil

How to make this recipe

  1. Preheat the oven to 400°. Spread the potatoes on a large rimmed baking sheet, drizzle with the oil and toss to coat. Bake for about 45 minutes, until crisp and tender.
