Total time: 25 minutes | Serves 4

  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 3 ounces pancetta, chopped (about 1/2 cup)
  • 1 onion, chopped
  • 1 red bell pepper, seeded and chopped
  • 1 tablespoon minced fresh rosemary, plus 4 sprigs for garnish
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon freshly ground pepper

Step 1Place the potatoes in a 13x9-inch glass dish, cover with plastic wrap and microwave until tender, about 10 minutes.

Step 2Meanwhile, heat the olive oil in a 12-inch nonstick skillet over medium-high heat. Add the pancetta, onion and bell pepper; cook until the vegetables are softened, 5 minutes. Add the cooked potatoes and the rosemary and cook without stirring until the potatoes are golden on the bottom, 4 minutes. Flip the hash over in sections and cook without stirring until the potatoes are golden on the bottom, 4 minutes. Sprinkle with salt and pepper. Garnish each serving with a rosemary sprig.

Note: The pancetta is much easier to chop if it's at least partially frozen.
