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 RecipeSave Recipe


  • 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


  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.

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

Lindsey says:
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!
Blair Dishon says:
I wish i had an actual spiralizer as opposed to the handheld vegetti so I could do these scrumptious looking potato noodles
Anonymous says:
The man at the kitchen store convinced me the hand held just can't measure up and I wasn't sure but I spent the money on the OXX and what a difference. The hand held just can't produce the same results so save your pennies.
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.

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.

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.
Mandy Shannon says:
Absolutely love how fresh and delicious these recipes sound, can't wait to try
Sandy Lynn says:
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!
Erin says:
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.
Heidi Padveem says:
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"

Lisa says:
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!
Meaghan says:
Thanks for sharing this important tip!
Kathleen says:
Made this, delicious

you know what keeps me up at night? 🥺 the gut-wrenching mom guilt from worrying that this time is going to fly by (it is!) and I’m going to look back and wish I had made more one on one time with each my kids when they wanted it! it’s so hard to separate my time, and I’ll admit that I’m not great at finding ways and the right moments to do it. mamas out there who have 2 or more, what do you do to get more individual time with each of your kids?
