  • 3 medium yellow potatoes diced
  • 2 tbsp extra virgin olive oil
  • 1 medium red bell pepper diced
  • ½ medium red onion diced
  • ½ tsp garlic powder
  • ½ tsp dried parsley
  • ½ tsp dried rosemary
  • ½ tsp smoked paprika
  • ¼ cup Parmesan cheese freshly grated
  • Sea salt and black pepper to taste


  • Heat olive oil in a large cast-iron skillet over medium heat. Add the red pepper and onion and sprinkle with garlic powder, parsley, rosemary, and smoked paprika. Season with salt and black pepper, to taste, and stir well to combine
  • Cook, stirring frequently until the pepper and onion soften and develop a bit of color, about 3-4 minutes.
  • Add the diced potatoes to the skillet and season with additional salt and black pepper, as desired. Cook, stirring occasionally, until the potatoes are golden brown and slightly crispy, around 6-7 minutes. Season with additional salt and black pepper, if desired.
  • Remove from heat and sprinkle freshly grated Parmesan cheese on top of the warm potatoes. Cover just until the cheese melts and serve immediately.
