Fingerling Potatoes

This is an easy side dish that whips up in a snap, plus it is delicious! What is even better about the recipe is that you don't have to measure a thing!  This is from the Barefoot Contessa's 1st cookbook.

I was able to use our fingerlings from our organic delivery and they were soooo good.  Creamy and so flavorful!

1/2 - 1 pound of fingerling potatoes (however many you think you will want)
fresh ground pepper

Place the clean fingerlings into a medium sauce pot and cover with water. Put about a teaspoon of salt in the pan as well. Bring to a boil, then reduce down to simmer for around 15-20 minutes until tender.

Drain potatoes and leave in strainer. Cover with a kitchen towel for around 5-10 minutes to allow them to finish cooking.

When they are cool enough to handle, cut lengthwise and toss with olive oil, fresh cracked salt and pepper to taste.
