Preheat the oven to 400ºF. Wash the potatoes well to remove any dirt or debris. Cut the potatoes into 1/2 to 3/4-inch cubes. Spread the cubes out on a large baking sheet in a single layer (if your baking sheet is not non-stick, consider lining it with foil for easy clean up).
In a small bowl, stir together the grated Parmesan, chopped parsley, garlic powder, and some freshly cracked pepper (10-15 cranks of a pepper mill).
Drizzle the olive oil over the potatoes, then sprinkle the Parmesan mix over top. Toss the potatoes in the oil and Parmesan until they are all well coated. Give the potatoes one last pinch of salt.
Bake the potatoes in the oven for 40 minutes, or until golden brown and crispy, stirring once half way through. Total cooking time will depend on the size of the potato cubes. Serve immediately.
