Marrying an Italian Australian has some wonderful benefits. Sure, there was the time I ate boiled pig fat just to keep a Nonna happy but you only live once and imagine my delight at being given instructions for killing a chicken: “just put your foot on the flappy thing and twist”. Excellent!
Being a big fan of eating, obviously the benefits of Italian food are unparalleled. Pipi e patati (peppers and potatoes) would have to be one of my favourite Calabrian dishes. It’s simple to make and great comfort food.
- 5 potatoes
- 1 onion
- 1 tomato
- 1 capsicum (red or green)
- 3 chillies
- olive oil
- Fry chips and set aside.
- Roughly chop onion, tomato, capsicum and chillies then fry with olive oil and salt until soft.
- Add tomato with a little bit more oil and salt. Mix it all together and enjoy with crusty bread
Check out that oil factor (I never said it was healthy people).
