4 pounds Russet Potatoes, cut into cubes or wedges
2 tablespoons of olive oil
3 cloves garlic, minced
2 Tablespoons fresh chopped parsley
Fresh grated Parmesan cheese
Salt and pepper
Heat oven to 450°F. Bring a pot of water to a boil. Add the potatoes and cook for 3 to 6 minutes depending on size. While potatoes are cooking put oil in cast iron skillet or other heavy pan and heat in oven. Drain the potatoes and place them back in the pot. Put the pot back on the burner and shake to dry the potatoes and to rough up their surface. This is what gives roasted potatoes that perfect crust. Add the potatoes to the hot oil, toss to coat and roast turning once or twice. When potatoes are almost tender sprinkle with fresh garlic and Parmesan, salt and pepper and continue roasting until potatoes are tender. Turn at least one more time for even browning.Just before serving, toss with fresh chopped parsley.
