Roasted Potatoes with Green Peppers and Onions

I don’t often buy Yukon gold potatoes, but they had some nice ones at the market today, so we decided to have some to roast.  
I know that there aren’t any herbs like rosemary or thyme or any garlic in this recipe, and you can add those according to the other dishes you may be serving with the potatoes.  However, they are excellent just like this, letting the taste of the really fresh vegetables shine through.   It is important to use good quality olive oil when it is the only seasoning.
I like roasted potatoes, because I can prepare the rest of the meal while they are roasting, cutting down on the “frazzle” time before dinner.                       
Roasted Potatoes with Green Peppers and Onions

  1. We will have this for dinner soon. I am so thankful for your recipes. The main reason we eat out is because I can't think of anything good to fix for dinner. I can now. I just come to your blog in the morning and choose what hits me as special that day.
    Thank you!
