Roasted Potato is one of my favorite side dish and this Italian roasted potatoes recipe is fast becoming my favorite. This is also a quick and easy recipe to roast and bake potatoes in the oven.
These potatoes are absolutely out-of-the-world delicious. Made with Parmesan cheese, garlic, olive oil and herb. Just look at the pictures, don’t you just want to pick up the potatoes and eat?
Baby Potatoes vs. Regular Potatoes
I love baby potatoes and they are perfect for this Italian roasted potatoes recipe. Baby potatoes are quick to cook and take only 20 minutes from prep to dinner. Just pick up the smallest baby potatoes you can find at your local store the next time you go shopping.
You can also use regular-sized potatoes but be sure to cut them up into smaller chunks about the size of baby potatoes so they get cooked evenly in the oven.

Italian Roasted Potatoes Recipe
Italian Roasted Potatoes - buttery, cheesy oven-roasted potatoes with Italian seasoning, garlic, paprika and Parmesan cheese. So delicious.
- 1 lb baby potatoes
- 1 tablespoon olive oil
- 2 cloves garlic, minced
- 1 teaspoon bottled Italian seasoning
- 1/4 teaspoon salt or to taste
- 2 dashes paprika
- 1/3 cup shredded Parmesan cheese
- 1 teaspoon chopped parsley leaves
- 2 tablespoons unsalted butter, cut into small cubes
1Preheat the oven to 400F. Clean and rinse the baby potatoes, drain and cut into halves.
2Heat up an oven-safe skillet (cast-iron preferred) and add the olive oil. Add the potatoes and cook until the surface turns crispy. Turn over the cook the skin side until nicely browned. Push the potatoes to one side and saute the garlic, follow by the Italian seasoning, salt and paprika, stir to combine well. Turn off the heat and sprinkle the cheese and parsley on top of the potatoes. Transfer the skillet into the oven, roast for 15 minutes. Add the butter cubes on top of the potatoes, serve immediately.
I used extremely small baby potatoes. If you have bigger potatoes, roast for 20 minutes or until cooked. You may also roast the potatoes right away in the oven. Just combine the olive oil, garlic, potatoes, Italian seasoning, salt and paprika with the potatoes and follow the remaining steps. Roast for 20 minutes.
