Potato Saute Surprise

50 mins (prep 20, cooking 30)
7 ingredients
4 servings
This very simple recipe invented by my wife, Michelle, is called 'surprise' because I thought 'OK, sauteed potatoes', but then the taste was so much better and out of the ordinary I'm posting it because everyone deserves a chance to try it. The trick about is that everything but the potatoes seems to disappear into background but the flavours are there to surprise you. Peel the tomatoes the easy way. Drop them into boiling water for a 15-20 seconds. Run under cold water until cooled enough to handle then skins should nearly fall off. I hope you enjoy as much as I do, John
