Potatoes in Tomato Sauce are made all over Mediterranean area, from Spain to Italy and Greece. It is a simple but delicious side dish that you can prepare in 30 minutes on your stovetop (no need to turn on the oven and only one pot to clean). When all the liquid cooks up, you are left with soft potatoes in thick and aromatic tomato sauce.
You can serve this dish with meat or fish. I like to sprinkle some feta cheese on top of potatoes.
Use herbs of your choice: basil, parsley and/or oregano. Some pepperoncini (or chili) peppers can be added for an extra kick.
- 2 lb potatoes peeled and cubed
- 1 onion chopped
- 5 cloves garlic
- 2 Tablespoons olive oil
- 1/2 teaspoons dry oregano or basil or parsley
- salt pepper
- 1 cup tomato sauce
Fry onions in olive oil until soft.
Add garlic, potatoes, tomato sauce and enough water to cover the potatoes. Season with oregano, salt and pepper.
Cook for about 1/2 hour or until potatoes are cooked through, stirring from time to time. Serve Potatoes in Tomato Sauce immediately. Store leftovers in the fridge for the next day.
