    Maureenie's Note:

    This is from Giada De Laurentiis. The lemon and basil give these potatoes a really fresh, clean taste.

      Excellent. Used russets since I had them and water instead of the chicken broth since I had none. Still, very tasty and refreshing. Tossed in a little lemongrass with the chopped basil, too.

      We loved these! I used baby Yukons since I had them on hand. The potatoes were very lemony which suited us fine, but may not be to all tastes. Will definitely make again and again.

      I tripled this recipe and used Idaho potatoes, and it was just lovely. Very refreshing, lemony flavor and the basil really enhanced the dish. I served to company and everyone was delighted.
