Marcella Hazan's Potato, Tomato & Yellow Bell Pepper Stew

Originally uploaded by suebobdavis.
This is what I had for dinner. It requires 1/3 cup of olive oil with 1 1/2 lbs of new potatoes, so though it is an all-vegetable dish, it is quite rich.

I mopped up the sauce with bread, as Marcella suggests -- and Marcella can't be wrong, can she?

I think there's a reason Marcella's so round. It's good but you can cut back on the EVOO and it won't suffer.

I think a love for richness is hard-wired into about 97 percent of people. That is one reason we love to eat out - the food usually has more fat in it than we could ever bear to put in at home.

I know whenever I go a little crazy with the olive oil, people rave about the food.
