  • 1/2 cup chopped onion
  • 1 large red potato (¾ lb.), halved and sliced 1⁄8-inch thick

3. Heat 1 Tbs. oil in large ovenproof skillet over medium heat. Add onion, and sauté 1 minute. Increase heat to medium-high, add potato, and season with salt, if desired. Cook 5 minutes, or until browned in some places and al dente, stirring occasionally.
