  • 2 pounds red-skinned potatoes, halved
  • 1/4 cup plus 3 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil
  • Salt and pepper
  1. In a large saucepan, combine the potatoes and enough cold water to cover by 1 inch. Bring to a boil and cook until fork-tender, about 20 minutes. Drain and return to the pot.
  2. Using the back of a large spoon, lightly smash the potatoes. Stir in 1/4 cup olive oil and season with salt and pepper. To serve, drizzle each portion with 1/2 tablespoon olive oil.
