Matevž Side Dish Recipe: Mashed Potato with Pancetta & Beans

This Balkan side dish is one of my absolute favourites.  I’m not a fan of mashed potato but this is so much more than that.  A mixture of potato, kidney and cannellini beans and pancetta this is simply truly delicious!  Plus, it’s incredibly easy to make and goes well with meat, sausages, fish and salad.
