These potatoes can be sprayed with olive oil pan spray rather than using regular oil to make them less fattening. Most any vegetable can be prepared like this. The roasting gives them a much more intense flavor than just steaming them. I've done carrots, parsnips, broccoli, and cauliflower this way and my family loves them.

Full of great earthy rosemary flavor, these roasted potatoes are scrumptious. The olive oil gives the skin a delicious crunchy texture. We loved the added cheesy flavor and zing from the Parmesan. A fantastic side dish for steak, burgers, or chicken.
