Roasted Parmesan Sweet Potatoes

I know the combination sounds super weird, but these were absolutely heavenly!  Sometimes sweet potatoes are just too sweet to eat with dinner, but these were perfect.  The salty cheese and the sweet potato are a
match made in heaven!

4 large sweet potatoes, peeled and cubed
3 tablespoons olive oil
4 basil leaves
4 rosemary sprigs
1/2 cup parmesan cheese

Pre-heat your oven to 350 degrees.

In a large bowl, put the olive oil and the cubed sweet potatoes.  Stick to about a 1/2 inch cube and try to make them all the same size.  Chop up the basil leaves and rosemary sprigs very finely and put into the bowl.  Stir around until each potato is evenly coated.

Pour the mixture onto a cookie sheet and bake in the oven for 50-55 minutes or until potatoes become tender.

Take out of the oven, and sprinkle with Parmesan cheese (I freshly grated mine), and place back in for another 10 minutes or until cheese begins to melt.  Serve and enjoy!
