Roasted potatoes are a simple side dish that cooks in the oven while you prepare the rest of your meal.
You'll need a sheet pan, some parchment paper or foil, a cutting board, a knife and measuring spoons.
Preheat oven to 400 degrees.
Line a baking sheet with parchment paper or heavy duty foil.
Wash potatoes in cold water and scrub with a vegetable brush until there is no visible dirt.
Cut potatoes into 1/2 inch wide strips that are anywhere from 2 to 3 inches long and place on the lined baking sheet.
Drizzle olive oil over potatoes and mix using your hands until potatoes are evenly coated.
Spread potatoes out evenly on the lined baking sheet and season with salt and pepper
Bake for about 30 minutes, tossing about half way through for even cooking. The potatoes are done when a fork easily pierces the potatoes and they are slightly browned.
Garnish with optional parsley.
