This is sooo tasty! Great way to use summers yield of fresh basil. I know I have trouble coming up with ways to use it other than the obvious and this recipe is a good way to do so. You can also just use sliced regular potatoes. This recipe originally came from a southern living cookbook

Yum! I made this tonight and used Garlic Chives and fresh Basil from my herb garden. Instead of the whipping cream I used Fat Free Half & Half and it turned out great! Thanks for a great recipe (and a way to use some of that Basil I'm growing)

This is a great recipe for those fresh spring potatoes and the great fresh herbs. I used fresh chives instead of shallots, and the rest of the recipe was exactly as directed. Thanks for the great recipe.
