Garlic Rosemary Potatoes

I found these delicious, multi-colored fingerling potatoes at Costco last week and they are perfect for this easy side dish. You can easily substitute any type of potato you like.
Garlic Rosemary Potatoes
2 lbs. potatoes, washed and cut into bite size pieces
1/3 c. parmesan cheese
2 T. butter
1 t. garlic powder

In a large pot, boil potatoes until tender (about 20-25 minutes, depending on the size of the pieces.) Drain and transfer potatoes to a mixing bowl. Add cheese, butter, garlic powder and rosemary. Toss and add salt to taste. Serve warm.
