Potato, New Crop, Erdfrucht, Field


For those like me who don’t have the meaty option of meatballs, and sausages to make a filling sink your teeth into meal, this might be one for you.  It has the flavour of the rich pasta sauce, but the filling yumminess of good old spuds.


  • Potatoes 1 1/2 pounds/ approximately .7 kg
  • Bell Pepper 1/2 large
  • Garlic 2 large cloves
  • Olive Oil 1 Tbs
  • Basil 1 tsp
  • Oregano 1/2 tsp
  • Onion Powder 1/2 tsp
  • Salt to taste
  • Prepared Pasta Sauce (Ragu or similar) 500 g
  • Water as need
  • Greek Yogurt 2 Tbs



Peel and wash the potatoes, and cut into 1/4 inch cubes.  Remove seeds from the pepper and dice onto small pieces.  Peel and finely sliver the garlic.  Heat the oil in a large frying pan and add the peppers and potatoes.  Stir fry until the potatoes begin to brown on all sides.  Add the garlic and herbs and continue to stir.  Add the sauce to the pan, and add a small small splash of water, and stir.  Reduce heat and allow sauce to warm.  When it begins to bubble at the sides, stir in the yogurt until well blended and then serve.
