Heyyy,

I have a super simple potato side dish for you today.

Patate Rifatte, which literally means potatoes redone is a side dish that’s made using leftover boiled potatoes. This is a great way to use up leftovers from the weekend and turn it into a simple, yet delicious side dish that’s perfect with chicken or fish.

Patate Rifatte doesn’t always have to be made with leftover potatoes. I often make this potato side dish whenever I have a few spare potatoes lying around that need used up. I often change it up with different herbs and some spices such as pepperoncino (hot chili flakes) for a different flavour and kick.

To make patate rifatte, I firstly fry 2 cloves of garlic with a large bunch of fresh marjoram (the smell is amazing!). Then the boiled potatoes are added and fried for a few minutes before adding the chopped tomatoes. I then add a touch of water and seasoning.

It’s left to simmer and reduce for around 10-15 minutes and that’s it! Serve these yummy potatoes with any meat or fish for a fantastic, simple weeknight meal.

I really enjoy making meals out of leftovers such as these chicken croquettes with ricotta and thyme. Not only is it very economical but using leftovers to make a whole other meal helps save food waste which is something I really hate. I think that’s why I love Italian cooking so much, no only does it require only very simple ingredients with beautiful fresh flavours but there are also so many ways to use up leftover ingredients to make delicious, filling, healthy and money saving meals.

What’s your favourite way to use leftovers?

    Often time our dinner sides get so repetitive, this looks like a great way to change things up. Those potatoes turn such a beautiful color in the tomato!

    I love redone potatoes; always so tasty and moreish. Reminds me of when I was a child, and vegetables would get reused in various ways, sometimes vegetable cakes (mixed with egg, floured and fried) or bubble and squeak.

    Your recipe uses few ingredients and is simple, so handy for an easy supper or side.

    What a lovely recipe. I guess it’s a bit like patatas bravas but without the spice! Delicious!
