Italian Herbed Potatoes
Roasting vegetables is always a great way to enjoy the flavors of the vegetable while adding in some complementary flavor elements. And most roasted veggie recipes are super simple. Chop, oil, season, and bake. Whether you use Yukon gold potatoes, red potatoes, or mixed-colored potatoes, your family will love this zesty variation of classic roasted red potatoes.
While my husband follows a keto lifestyle, I still like to enjoy the occasional dish without counting carbs. These oven-roasted herbed potatoes are one of those dishes that I love to add in once in a while – even if he is not going to eat them with me. The mix of waxy, red potatoes, oil, herbs, and parmesan just hit a flavor note and texture you can’t get elsewhere.
Plus, this side is perfect for when we are hosting non-low-carb or keto guests. I can easily whip these potatoes up and serve them alongside pan-fried asparagus and air fried pork chops to create a meal that works for a variety of food lifestyles, all around one table.

Step by Step Instructions
Preheat your oven to 400F and make sure your rack is in the middle position.
Chop your potatoes into bite-sized chunks, as uniformly as possible. Some of mine only required cutting in half, while others did require quartering. Either way, uniform sizing helps to ensure uniform cooking.
In a medium-sized bowl add the oil, Italian seasoning or herbs de Provence, grated parmesan, minced garlic, salt, and pepper.
Stir to combine all ingredients.
Add the chopped potatoes to the bowl and toss to combine them with the seasoning and oil.
Line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
Spread the potatoes evenly on the prepared pan and bake until crispy and cooked through. Turn the potatoes every 15 minutes to get them evenly browned.
The total bake time is 35-40 minutes.
Once your potatoes have reached your desire doneness, remove them from the oven.
Sprinkle them with additional salt and pepper (if desired). Garnish with fresh parsley or fresh herbs.
Dig in! Makes 6 side-dish servings.
