We’re in the transition where it’s still a little too hot for soups and chilis, but it’s not time to transition completely from our favorite summertime eats. At our house, we love a good dinner of roasted chicken and vegetables–especially roasted potatoes. You see, we’re french fry lovers & we always need a healthier alternative to greasy fries.
When Melissa’s Produce offered to send me some of their seasonal selections, I jumped at the chance to try out their Baby Dutch Yellow Potatoes and Mini San Marzano Tomatoes. I just new they would make a delicious transitional side dish while we’re waiting for the chilly weather to set in.
This dish is really simple, but packs a spicy punch. Plus, the roasted potato skin gets a little crispy and it’s pretty much perfection with the natural, buttery flavor of the yellow potatoes. Spicy food is the best food, according to my husband. The tomatoes aren’t spicy like the potatoes, so it’s a nice contrast to their cajun flavor.
