Herbed Potato Wedges

I am fairly sure I got this from the Taste of Home website, but I can't seem to find the exact recipe right now. This is a quick and easy side dish that works with any type of potatoes but is best with the fresh potatoes that are in season right now.

Ingredients (for two servings):

2 medium potatoes
2 teaspoons thyme (or rosemary, or other spices to taste)
1 teaspoon lemon juice
2 teaspoons parmesan cheese
~ 1 tablespoon oil
salt and pepper to taste


Cut potatoes in bite-size pieces.
Layer potato wedges in a microwave safe dish, cut side up.
Brush potatoes with oil.
Sprinkle with spices first, then with parmesan cheese.
Drizzle with a bit of lemon juice.
Layer a second layer of potatoes on top.
Brush with oil.
Sprinkle with spices and parmesan again.
Drizzle with lemon juice again.
* The dish that I use is small but tall, that's why I end up with several layers of potatoes.

Close the dish with its lid.
Microwave on high for about 10 min or until the potatoes are tender.

If your dish doesn't have a steam vent on the lid, be very careful when opening it, as the trapped steam comes out fast.

The potatoes on this picture are with red pepper only, but you get the idea:
