I read an article recently which described roasted potatoes as more technique than actual recipe and I think that’s a really succinct way of putting it. There are a bazillion variations on the theme but the process itself remains the same. Quick oven, a little oil, a dash or pinch of this and that, and voila! This recipe uses the cute and tasty fingerling, with a little dried seasoning for flavor. If you have fresh rosemary, then by all means use it – just double or even triple the required amount.
