For dinner last evening, we had sautéed calamari steaks and oven fries. Oven fries are delicious and are a very healthful alternative to traditional French fries. Here is the methodology: Coat an oven-safe glass cooking dish with cooking spray. Slice white potatoes lengthwise into thick wedges and arrange in cooking dish. Coat the potato wedges with cooking spray. Sprinkle with garlic powder, sea salt, Cajun seasoning, and Italian seasoning. Cover the dish with a damp paper towel and microwave on high for 10 minutes. Remove the paper towel and place the dish in a conventional oven that has been preheated to 400 degrees. Cook for 20 minutes. Turn oven to broil and cook for 10 minutes or until potatoes are browned well. Enjoy!
