How to prepare:
Boil the potatoes, mash them until you obtain a potato puree. Add the grated parmesan, salt, pepper, egg, extra virgin olive oil and a bit of bread crumbs. Mix all the ingredients together.
Cover an oven tray with baking paper, add a spoon of olive oil and add half of the puree.
Fry the onion in a pan and add olives, tomatoes chopped finely, capers and anchovies. Once ready, add the ‘soffritto’ to the puree and cover with the other half of the potato mix.
