Roasted Potato Wedges
Fette di Patate Arroste
cookbook: Lidia's Italy in America
main ingredients: potato

serves: Serves 4 to 6

Everybody loves roasted potatoes and these have a Mediterranean twist, lots of garlic and rosemary. The aroma of roasted rosemary in my mind conjures up images of big roasted meats and holidays, so whenever I make this dish it feels like a holiday to me.


¼ cup plus 3 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil
3 tablespoons fresh rosemary leaves
4 garlic cloves, sliced
2 pounds russet potatoes cut lengthwise into 1-inch wedges
1 teaspoon kosher salt
freshly ground black pepper


Preheat oven to 425 degrees F. In a large bowl, combine 1/4 cup of the olive oil, the rosemary, garlic and parsley. Let steep while the potatoes roast.

Spread potatoes on a rimmed baking sheet. Season with the salt and toss with the remaining 3 tablespoons olive oil. Roast on lower rack until golden on one side, about 10 minutes. Flip and roast until golden on the other side and potatoes are cooked through and very crispy, about 10 minutes more.

Immediately dump hot potatoes in the bowl with the garlic-rosemary mixture and toss to coat. Season with black pepper. Use tongs to lightly crush potatoes then toss again to let the exposed parts of potato get coated with oil. Serve immediately.

You can pick out some or all of the rosemary and garlic before serving if you like.

This recipe is from Lidia’s newest book, Lidia’s Italy in America, which was released in October.
