Yum Roasted Potatoes

I love a good roasted potato recipe.  This next recipe is quite easy and of course tasty.  It makes a perfect side dish…or a main course should you choose to eat just a bowl of potatoes as I did.

I mixed potato wedges with olive oil, garlic, salt, pepper, oregano, paprika, lemon juice, lemon zest and kalamata olives.

Placed them in a baking pan, spreading in a single layer.  I poured 1/2 cup of water in the pan and placed in a 400 degree oven.

After 30 minutes I removed from the oven, flipped the potatoes and poured another 1/2 cup of water in the pan.  I placed the pan back in the oven for another 30 minutes.

I removed from the oven and topped with parsley and served.

Yum!!
