Easy Roasted Garlic-Parmesan Potato Noodles

Easy Roasted Garlic-Parmesan Potato Noodles

While I love using the spiralizer to make big ‘ole healthy bowls of Italian pasta and Vietnamese noodle bowls, I also love using this beloved kitchen gadget for preparing simple sides.

Let’s face it: chopping, cubing, dicing and slicing potatoes is monotonous. Not only is it uneventful, it’s predictable in flavor and texture: I’m pretty sure we all know what a cubed roasted potato tastes like.

Now enter: potato noodles.

Easy Roasted Garlic-Parmesan Potato Noodles

There’s something about the potato being in noodle form that changes the game. The consistency and texture is more exciting, and the taste of the potatoes transform when they’re in noodle-shape.

If you’re watching your starch or carb intake and are trying to cut back on the potatoes, don’t fret: you get more bang for your buck with spiralized potatoes (one small red potato yields over 1 cup of dry noodles!) If you were to simply dice or cube a potato, you’d only get a handful of pieces.

These potato noodles are THE best. I made them over Christmastime for my family and they were a hit. When I posted that picture on Instagram, based on your responses, I knew I had to eventually post my recipe – which is simple, easy and super flavorful!

The spices are simple – olive oil, garlic powder, salt and pepper. Nothing fancy – with this side, we let the food do the talkin’. The few minutes of broiling at the end crisp them up lightly, while letting the light dusting of parmesan really bake into the potato noodles.

If you’re throwing a dinner party and need a starch, try these potato noodles. Your guests will be impressed, trust me! Plus, you don’t need that many potatoes to serve 6, so if you’re having an intimate dinner, just grab 2 or 3 medium red potatoes at the store and voila – along with some pantry items, you have a healthy side dish!

They go great, of course, with a juicy steak – or try with some rosemary chicken or even a baked fish!

Might I add, they’re pretty to plate, especially with a light dusting of minced parsley for freshness?

Save Recipe

Ingredients

  • 2 pounds red potatoes, Blade C, noodles trimmed
  • 1 tablespoon extra virgin olive oil
  • salt and pepper, to taste
  • ½ teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1.5 tablespoons freshly grated parmesan cheese
  • 2 tablespoons minced parsley, to garnish

Instructions

  1. Preheat the oven to 425 degrees.
  2. Place the potato noodles in a large mixing bowl immediately after spiralizing and pour over olive oil. Toss gently with your fingers to combine and then lay out on a parchment-paper lined baking sheet. Season with salt, pepper and garlic powder and roast for 12-15 minutes or until they start to turn golden brown.
  3. Remove the potato noodles from the oven and set it to broil. Sprinkle the potatoes with parmesan cheese and set back in the oven for 3-5 minutes or until golden brown, careful not to burn (a few burnt edges are okay.)
  4. Remove from the oven, garnish with parsley and transfer to a serving bowl. Serve immediately.

  1. I’m not really on a health journey, per se, but trying to eat more diversity of starches and be more flexible in general.

  2. I think everyone should be more aware of what we’re putting in our mouths. This spiralizer is helping me get more fruit and veggies in a delicious way.

  3. I’m really trying to eat healthier. I recently had surgery which is making me re_evaluate how we eat.

  4. 2015 is my year to eat a more plant based diet.

  5. My health goal is to eat the majority of foods that do not have nutrition facts or an ingredient list = whole foods!

  6. I am trying to cut out more of the junk food type snacks I continue to eat. There aren’t many, but I could do without them and maybe see my abs more :)

  7. I am cutting out processed foods and eating more whole foods. Thanks for the giveaway!

  8. Used my spiralizer for the first time ever last week on zucchini and I LOVED it. Love the simplicity of this recipe and you’re right…it looks totally impressive!

  9. Looks tasty and easy to make!

  10. These are such an awesome idea! So doing this soon!

  11. lisamummymadeit :

    I just made these but wasn’t quick enough! They were so good they were eaten up so quickly. Tomorrow I’ll try it with White Sweet Potato.

  12. I’m hoping to eat more vegetarian meals….they are cheaper than meat-based meals and I love discovering new ways to eat fruits and veggies!

  13. Love this idea. I just started spiralizing and am truly impressed with how quickly it all comes together compared to the slicing and dicing methods I am used to. Keeping this in mind for an upcoming book club dinner!

  14. I wish i had an actual spiralizer as opposed to the handheld vegetti so I could do these scrumptious looking potato noodles

  15. I love the simplicity of this recipe! It looks easy and tasty – great for busy weeknights and staying on track! This recipe easily fits in my journey of staying healthy and eating whole foods.

  16. Hi, I’m loving my spiralizer using your recipes, do you know what the UK equivalent is for broiling?

  17. Always on a health journey. Trying to get my weight down and get off all unnecessary medications.

  18. This looks so good – can’t wait to try it out. Can you clarify what size blade C is – ? 3MM or 6MM – thanks

  19. Lee Ann Kaplan :

    My health journey is an ongoing struggle.

  20. Looks delicious! No more boring potatoes!

  21. looks good! from every angle

  23. Dorothy Moravec :

    How do you enter the Aloha give away contest?

  24. I joined a fitness challenge and I also subscribed to your newsletter. Loving my spiralizer! This was my third attempt at finding such a gadget and I am so glad I tried again!

  25. Made this recipe this morning with russet potatoes and served it with fried eggs on top! Delicious!

  26. Yes, I am trying to be healthy and stick to it. My goals are to get what I need and learn more and then just try to enjoy being healthier.

  27. My goal is to lose 70 lbs. I’ve been a yo-yo dieter all my life. Finally, I’m trying to eat healthier and lose it slowly.

  28. Mandy Shannon :

    Absolutely love how fresh and delicious these recipes sound, can’t wait to try

  29. Question: Will the potato noodles turn black if they are not cooked right away (like shredded potatoes for latkes do)? If you spiralize them and then put olive oil on can you let them sit for an hour or so before you cook them to avoid them turning color if that’s a problem?
    Thanks.
    p.s. so far have loved every single recipe I’ve tried and have now turned on at least three friends to your site!

  30. Made these for dinner tonight – delish! While the potatoes were in the oven, I tossed some chicken, kale (a lot!), white beans, and a little onion into a skillet and cooked it in some white wine and chicken stock. Topped the potato noodles with this concoction for a main course. Hubby said it was the best spiralized dinner I’ve ever made – lol.

  31. Is anyone else having a problem with using the D blade. when I use D with sweet potato I just get round circles…not a “noodle”

  32. This is a great recipe. However, be very mindful that it can be dangerous to broil with parchment paper. Make sure the pan is very far away from the broiler. I knew better but thought I’d just pay attn. Kitchen almost burned down. But I did manage to save half of the meal. And it was excellent!
