Preheat oven to 400°F.
Line a large baking sheet with aluminum foil and coat lightly with oil.
Grind fennel seed, oregano and basil into a powder using a spice mill or mortar and pestle.
Wash, peel and slice potatoes into thin french fry shapes.
Combine ground spices, tomato paste, garlic powder, salt, sugar and oil in a small bowl until smooth.
Place potatoes and seasoning paste in a large ziplock or plastic bag.
Using your hands, move the potatoes around in the bag until they are evenly coated with the seasoning paste.
Place potatoes in a single layer on the baking sheet.
Bake for 25 minutes at 400°F.
Using a spatula, turn potatoes over and sprinkle with parmesan cheese (if using).
Bake for 10-20 minutes more or until fries become golden and start to crisp (time may vary with size of fries).
Serve with marinara sauce or ketchup, if desired.
