Parmesan & Herb Roasted Potatoes can be served with any food you would normally serve mashed, baked, or fried potatoes from hamburgers and sandwiches to holiday dinners.
I used small red potatoes about 2-inches (5 cm) long cut into 4 wedges. Cut larger potatoes, like russet, into 6 or more wedges for uniform baking. The thicker the wedge, the longer the bake time.
One teaspoon of Italian seasoning can be substituted for the herbs.
Romano cheese can be substituted for all or part of the parmesan cheese.

Position rack in bottom of oven and preheat to 375°F (190°C). Line a baking sheet with aluminum foil and lightly coat with cooking spray.
In a rimmed plate or bowl combine cheese and seasoning.
Wash potatoes and dry with paper towels. Cut in half and then cut each half into wedges about 3/4-inch (1.9 cm) wide. Place wedges in a bowl and drizzle with olive oil. Using your hand, coat potatoes with the oil.
Press the cut edges of each wedge into he parmesan mixture and place cut-side up on baking sheet.
