When the nights start cooling off and thoughts of a heartier dinner beckon, try this tasty dish made with ingredients that highlight the pleasure of market-fresh potatoes.
1 pound boiling potatoes
Pinch of coarse salt
1 large clove garlic
10 sprigs Italian parsley
2 basil leaves chopped
¼ cup virgin olive oil Salt & Ground Pepper, to taste
Place a flameproof casserole containing the potatoes, about 7 cups of cold water and coarse salt on a medium flame. Simmer until the potatoes are soft (about 40 minutes). Finely chop the garlic and then the parsley plus basil. Place them in a serving bowl, along with the olive oil and salt and pepper to taste. When the potatoes are ready, peel them (or not) while still very hot and cut them into pieces about 1 inch square. Add the potato pieces to the bowl and mix with the other ingredients, using a wooden spoon.
