Roasted Potatoes with Chimichurri Sauce

Roasted Potatoes with Chimichurri Sauce

Potatoes are one of my favorite vegetables to comfort my mood and satisfy my cravings. Besides pasta, I could eat potatoes every single day. I mean, you can make potatoes in so many different ways, and to be quite honest, I could eat them seriously every day. Potatoes and I have this magical connection since I was a little girl and roasted potatoes hold a special place in my heart. As funny as it sounds, I’m not joking. It reminding me of my grandma’s roasted potatoes and a whole chicken that she’d made in her wood burning stove every Sunday when I’d come to visit. I didn’t have many amazing memories but remembering her always makes me smile.

Anyhow, I hope you all enjoy this delicious recipe.

Happy Cooking!
