A lightened up version of garlic potatoes, this recipe is great when time is in short supply or when you don't want to heat up the kitchen by using the oven. They can be served either hot or at room temperature. Source of recipe: Anne Lindsay's Lighthearted Everyday Cooking.

Great! We had these potatoes with our steak tonight for dinner. The beauty of this recipe is the easy and quick preparation. I used basil and parsley. The flavors blended well and were very tasty! Prepared as a participant in the January 2010 8th Annual Photo Swap of the Cooking Photo Forum.
