I always like to tell you to use salt and pepper, to taste because your salt and pepper tolerance might not be the same as mine. I might want more salt in my dish while you might want a little bit less. Use however much salt and pepper you want. However, just be sure to use it a little bit at a time and then taste the mixture. That way, you don’t overdo it. And, if you taste it and find that you need more, you just add as much as you need.
To make the potatoes, first, preheat your oven to 425°F/220°C. Next, wash your potatoes and pat them dry. Then, cut them into bite-sized pieces. Next, in a large bowl, mix the lemon juice, olive oil, garlic powder, Italian seasoning, salt, and pepper. Toss in the potatoes and coat them evenly. Spread them out on a baking sheet and bake them for 40 minutes, or until they’re tender to your liking. And, finally, Serve and Enjoy your Lemon Garlic Roasted Red Potatoes!
