Potatoes and Onions with Pepper Pesto

Patate e Cipolle al Pesto

Mary Ann Esposito

Who has not had potatoes and onions, but not\r\nlike this! A great side dish to pork, chicken or fish.

Serves 4


1/2 cup Filippo Berio Extra Virgin Olive Oil
2 large onions, white or yellow, coarsely chopped
1/2 cup white wine such as Falanghina
1 pound Yukon gold potatoes, peeled and julienned or diced
1 teaspoon salt
1 tablespoon red pepper pesto


Heat the olive oil in a large frying pan.

When the oil is shimmering, add the onions and cook until onions wilt; add the wine and cook until the onions absorb most of it.

Add the potatoes to the onions along with the salt.  Stir to combine well; cover and cook for about 5 minutes. 

Then uncover and stir in the pepper pesto and cook until the potatoes start to brown. Correct seasoning and serve hot.
