The funny and most interesting thing about these potatoes is the fact that they are light! They’re only sprayed lightly with olive oil cooking spray instead of drizzled. Since we’re going light on the oil (essentially spraying enough to cover the potatoes so that the herbs stick well to ’em), they aren’t overly fatty (even though olive oil is considered a good fat) and, as a result, this Italian Herb Roasted Potatoes recipe is only three Weight Watchers Freestyle points for every ½ cup serving. Amazing!
