Have you ever made a big pasta dinner for two?  Well, I do all the time and there is always leftover sauce.  Most of the time I just freeze it and use it again for something else.  But sometimes I carry it right over into breakfast.  Check out this Italian style hash.  It’s a great and tasty way to use up that leftover sauce!

Serves 2

What you’ll need:

6-8 red potatoes, cubed (I like to keep the skin on, but feel free to take it off if you like)

6 (or more) cherry tomatoes, halved

Some leftover sauce (could be tomato, vodka, pesto just about anything) I used tomato vodka sauce in the picture.  You can find my recipe for that here.

a few fresh basil leaves, chopped to garnish

What you’ll do:

In a medium frying pan heat up some olive oil on medium high, add in the potatoes and saute for about 10 ish minutes or until they are firm, but fork tender.  Add in the tomatoes and toss for about 30 seconds.  Then add in a few spoonfuls of sauce until it coats the potatoes.  Reduce heat to medium low and let cook a couple more minutes in the sauce.  If you are going to fry an egg, now would be the time.  Serve in a bowl or on a plate and garnish with some fresh basil.
