Neapolitan-style Pasta and Potatoes Quick and easy recipe
Neapolitan-style pasta and potatoes: certainly the carbohydrates in this recipe are not lacking, but pasta and potatoes is one of those dishes that fall into the "comfort food" category, those dishes that make you feel good while you eat them and are often full of memories, for those of you Naples like me this dish is a great classic!

How to make Neapolitan-style Pasta and Potatoes
Begin the preparation by peeling and washing the potatoes, then cut them into small enough cubes to reduce cooking time. In a saucepan, put 3 tablespoons of extra virgin olive oil, prepare a mixture for the sauté with carrot, celery and onion, put together the thin slice of bacon, brown lightly and add the washed and sliced tomatoes. Let it dry slightly ...
after a minute add the potatoes, season with salt and pepper and brown for a few moments; cover with water and bring to a boil,
cook for about 35-40 minutes over low heat by putting the lid on the pot, at this point there are two possibilities, the first is to cook the pasta directly in the pot with the potatoes
the second is to cook the pasta separately, drain it 4-5 minutes before the end of the cooking time and complete the cooking together with the potatoes. For convenience, I cook them together. When cooked, add 100 g of provolone cubes.
