This is the simplest and quickest dish in my arsenal, but also the one that has the most guests licking the bowl and asking for the recipe. It takes about 10 minutes and has only 5 ingredients, but it frequently outshines more complicated dishes. I hesitated to post this because it is more of a preparation than a recipe, but since so many people ask me to write it out for them, I thought someone might find it useful. I cannot claim to have invented this recipe any more than someone could claim to have invented spaghetti with butter and cheese.
Feel free to substitute fresh herbs on a seasonal basis. I like sage, thyme, and basil, on their own or in combination.
finely chopped sage (or thyme, or a combination)
