Servings 6 servings

Ingredients
  

  • 2 Medium Sized Potatoes, cubed
  • 1 Celery Stalk, finely diced
  • 1/2 Carrot, finely diced
  • 1/2 Onion, finely diced
  • Pancetta to taste
  • 1/4 cup Tomato Puree
  • Rind of Parmigiano (optional)
  • 1 lb Pasta Mista
  • Smoked Scamorza, cubed (optional)
  • 7 cups Hot Water
  • Salt and pepper to taste

Instructions
 

  • To a large pot, add olive oil, onion, celery, carrot and pancetta. Sauté for a few minutes.
  • Add in tomato puree and cook for a few minutes.
  • Add in potatoes, pasta and water. Season with salt and pepper and stir well. Cover and let it come up to a boil. Remove the cover and lower the heat to medium high. Stir frequently because this pasta has a tendency to stick to the bottom of the pot.
  • Once the potatoes are soft, start to mash some of them against the side of pot. This will create a creamier consistency to this dish.
  • Once the pasta and potatoes are cooked, add in the smoked scamorza. Stir to melt the cheese.
  • Top with grated cheese and enjoy!
