roasted potatoes with feta & artichokes

this is one of my favorite side dish recipes. one i get asked for a lot.
it contains two things that are high on my happy list: feta cheese and artichokes.
and it came from a pretty random place.
when my husband and i lived in st. louis, we were at a fundraiser at a really nice retirement home. this was served along with a wonderful holiday dinner. i was so smitten with this dish that i snuck to the back to the kitchen and found the chef! i begged him to tell me his recipe and he very kindly obliged. i recited it to myself over and over until we got home and i could write it down.
so here it is, a rich, buttery treasure smuggled from st. louis and taken with me everywhere we’ve been.
