Potatoes and Onions (Patate E Cipolle)

"The Art of Cookery website is where this recipe was found. Along with the recipe this tip was included: This dish is really rather filling in itself. Never serve it after an onion soup, for example, or with a substantial main course such as peppery stew or T-bone steak. In the winter-time you could even serve it as a first course. Another great recipe that will be included in the Zaar World Tour 2005."

  1. Fantastic potato recipe! The fresh rosemary smell permeated the entire house and everyone kept saying 'it smells so good!' I chunked my potatoes and roasted them for about an hour, the first 30 minutes at 375 and then another 25 minutes or so at 400 - that way they browned nicely! I added fresh ground pepper and Hungarian paprika (for color) too. Made for ZWT5.
  2. What a wonderful recipe. The potatoes were incredible, quick and easy to make with terrific results. So much flavor, the potatoes were perfectly cooked, tender and delicious. Thank you for sharing another winner.
  3. Followed instructions as listed using 2 sprigs of rosemary. This turned out delicious. The aroma was divine. I will be making these again and again. Thanks for sharing your lovely recipe!
  4. Sometimes simple dishes are the best and this is a case in point. Delicious! I reduced the recipe somewhat which is so easy to do when the ratio of potatoes to onions by weight is simply 1 to1. The only other change was that I had to dice the onions since one of my diners can't eat food that's in any way stringy as sliced onions would be. If that diner wasn't there I would have sliced the onions as directed. Thanks for sharing.
  5. Yummy! This recipe is similar to an American fried potato that DH loves! I really enjoyed the addition of the rosemary - although I did use dried... Forgot to pick up fresh... These cooked up just beautifully in about the same time as my pork chops! Thanks Lori! Wonderful! Made for KK Chef's Pick Tag


  1. So simple and easy and delicious. I made it in the microwave and it worked beautifully. I also made it with fresh chives instead of rosemary and that too worked beautifully. Thanks, Lori!
