Hey all I’m back after a big Diwali vacation. Even many there can relate. So any Blues, if yes it would be Wednesday Blues!
Roasted potatoes smeared in olive oil, garlic, Italian seasonings and Parmesan cheese plus the optional red pepper flakes for those of you who like a spicy taste.

The potatoes are baked on top of each other in a casserole dish rather than spread out on a baking sheet. Some of the ends will brown up so you get a little crunch here and there but that’s not the goal.

The purpose is to infuse them with tremendous flavor and bathe them in olive oil so they cook up soft and succulent.
