Sweet Potato Wedges

These sweet potato wedges have become one of our favorite side dishes. We love sweet potatoes and never thought a little red pepper and Parmesan cheese would make them so tasty. Yum!

1 1/2 - 2 lbs sweet potatoes
Olive oil
Sea salt
Ground red pepper
Parmesan cheese

Cut sweet potatoes lengthwise into 3/4 inch wide sticks, then cut crosswise in half. Place sweet potato wedges into a large bowl. Drizzle with olive oil. Mix until potatoes are well covered with oil. Sprinkle with sea salt and ground red pepper (lightly unless you like really spicy). Mix well. Place wedges in a single layer on a cookie sheet. Bake at 425 degrees for 18 minutes then turn potatoes over and bake for additional 15 minutes or until crisp. Remove from oven and sprinkle with Parmesan cheese.
