Roasted Red Potatoes

8 cups washed and halved small red potatoes
1/3 cup olive oil
3 tablespoons butter
Freshly ground black pepper

Preheat the oven to 350F. In a large pot boil the potatoes for 5 minutes, just until tender (do not overboil). Drain and set aside. In a roasting pan combine the olive oil and butter. Place in the oven for a quick 2 to 3 minutes, just until the butter melts and tray is hot. Add the potatoes to the baking tray and toss well with the butter/olive oil mixture. Season the potatoes with salt and pepper to taste and roast for approximately 50 minutes. Basting and tossing half way through cooking.
