Pasta with potatoes

Pasta chi patate. respecting standards of taste, authenticity and decorum, it is the tastiest, easiest and probably cheapest recipe known to me. The ubiquity of the ingredients – potatoes and pasta – and the simplicity of the preparation should therefor be concealed when cooking for guests.

Patate, in the south of Italy, are a vegetable. And treated as such. In other words, it is not staple foodPatate and pasta. There are the so-called classic variations: adding tomato sauce for example. The cooking time will be a bit longer. And I’d advice you to add another potato, because when tasting and checking if they are cooked, it is hard to control oneself. Another variation is the soup version. Instead of covering the potato, pour four times as much vegetable stock in the pan. What always works well is adding bacon-pancetta-speck. Pasta chi patate deserves a place on the menu. And if not in a restaurant, on your menu. Buon appetito
