Roasted Italian Potatoes and Onions – A Delicious Side Dish.

This recipe is super easy to do.  The potatoes  and onions take on a really delicious flavor with a mix of fresh rosemary and thyme combined with  paprika.  Making this recipe gave me a chance to try out a new brand of Sweet Smoked Spanish Paprika from one of my sponsors – Kiva. (affiliate link)  Their paprika gave the potatoes a wonderful smokey flavor that is amazing.  Even smelling the jar made me think of hickory smoke. It really is delightful.

The recipe is super easy to do.  The potatoes are first mixed with this lovely sweet smoked paprika in a bowl with some olive oil.  Next place the herbs on the bottom of the roasting pan. I used a silicone baking sheet.  It makes clean up easier later. Then slice the onions and place them on top of the herbs.  Finally, add the potatoes and paprika and drizzle with a bit more oil.
