I found these great blue potatoes in my local farmers' market. They were so pretty that I wanted to showcase them in a simple way; hence, this delightful yet simple recipe! You can substitute any potato really. I think fingerlings or reds would be just as good.

These were good, but for me needed more seasoning; next time I would add garlic and some herbs. I used russet potatoes, as our market doesn't have and blues. I was interested to see what difference soaking the potatoes would have as I make similar recipes frequently, but I really didn't see any , so would save time and skip this step. Be careful to slice the potatoes as evenly as possible, I had a couple that were thinner then the rest and didn't pull them out fast enough to keep from overcooking. Made for PAC Fall 09
