What a simply marvelous way to jazz up new potatoes. Simple and to the point. The basil was a new twist for me to add to potatoes, and I thought it was wonderful. I used the very small size potatoes, so I only halved them. The potatoes had a lovely visual appeal. Thanks, Leta, for sharing this recipe.
