Method

  1. Peel and roughly grate the potatoes using a soft cheese grater and slicer.
  2. Put a layer of potatoes in the base of a hot non-stick frying pan greased with oil and cook until they get brownish, then turn them.
  3. Peel the red pepper, remove the seeds and blend it in a mixer with oil, salt and pepper until you obtain a thick cream.
  4. Peel the Auricchietto and cut it into 1 cm thick slices.
  5. Warm up a non-stick frying pan, freshly greased and dried, and cook the Auricchietto slices over a high heat for one minute each side, until the outside gets crunchy. Turn them with a smooth spatula.
  6. Assemble the dish alternating layers of the melted cheese and fried potatoes, topping off the whole lot with the pepper sauce and drops of black olives tapenade.
