Tiella di Patate

Tiella di patate, also known as potato and rice pie, is a traditional dish from the Calabria region of Italy; it is a layered dish that typically features potatoes, rice, and vegetables such as tomatoes, onions, and peppers. It is baked in the oven until golden brown, and the flavors are melded together. It can also include meat or fish, such as sausage or anchovies.
