Ingredients:

(Serves 6-8)
A bag  of fingerling potatoes
1/4 cup olive oil
1 1/2 teaspoons salt
1 teaspoon black pepper
2 Tablespoons minced garlic
2 Tablespoons Italian seasoning

One Lemon

3.) Cover a baking sheet with foil and spray with nonstick cooking spray.  Spread potatoes out in one even layer on prepared baking sheet.

 

4.)Cut the lemons in quarters about 30 minutes after the potatoes have been in the oven then squeeze the juice out of the lemon and over the potatoes. ( I keep the lemon skins with the potatoes to keep the flavor and let it soak in to the potatoes.)

5.)Roast in the oven for 45 minutes to an hour, or until potatoes are browned and crisp.
