Krumplis Tészta

Pasta with Potatoes

Krumplis tészta is one of Hungarians’ favorite pasta dishes. The following recipe comes from mindmegette.hu, where it was submitted by user Ribizli.

1 package square-shaped pasta
4 medium sized potatoes
2 medium sized onions
1 tablespoon paprika
6 tablespoons oil
Ground black pepper

Peel potatoes and cut into small dice. Put in a pot, add salt and start cooking. When they are done, drain. (The author of the recipe recommends you do not throw away the water, as it can be used for soup.) Cook the pasta. Dice the onions, sautee them in oil, add paprika and crushed potatoes. Mix well, add pepper, and if it is too dry, add some oil. Mix well with the drained pasta.

    I’m affraid this receipe is missing a vital piece of information: how much does a “package of pasta” weigh? Like everything else, pasta comes in a variety of package sizes…

    I think they mean the almost standard 500g bag.

    My grandfather chopped and fried some smoked bacon and home made pork sausage and added to the Krumplis Tészta mix for a better flavor.

    These recipes are really nice, especially with some bacon or sausage or tejföl (sour cream) added, as my wife likes to do – but you have to be careful!

    Of course the added fat helps to abetter taste, but itr also adds a lot of calories (or Joules), so you should alternate with dishes containing more vegetables and maybe add some salad.

    In Gungary too many house wives still cook as if their husbands were working the fields all day – so the caloric intake is way too high …

    Spending all your time in front of a computer can be hazardous to your health. So keep doing it.
