Pepe e patate resembles a ratatouille, but is actually quite different. This is a seriously tasty and inexpensive dish, that feeds 4 until they are stuffed and smiling.
I found this on Youtube, an Italian lady from Australia sharing her recipes from Calabria. It is a Cucina Pauvre recipe, which means poor persons kitchen, which forms the basis of Italian food!

- 2 - 3 capsicums
- 4 medium potatoes
- 4 - 6 large potatoes
- 3 cloves of garlic
- olive oil
- A little basil if you like it
Peel and thinly slice the potatoes dry them on a tea towel Slice the peppers into strips
Chop the tomatoes and finely chop the garlic
You need a large frying pan, cover the base with oil and fry the potatoes
When golden, remove and set aside
Fry the peppers until they start to caramelize, then remove and set aside
Fry the tomatoes with the garlic, then return the peppers and potatoes to the pan and season with salt and pepper
Serve with crusty bread or any meat or fish you prefer
This dish is really cheap – especially if you grow your own potatoes, tomatoes and peppers, you can have a really hearty meal for almost nothing. And even if you buy the ingredients, you have a hearty meal for less than £1.00 a serving, and it really is excellent food.
