Rosto is a dish is of Italian origin, and provides for two complete courses cooked in one pot without the need for an oven. Originally the pasta was served as a first course with the tomato sauce over it. This was followed by the sliced meat, usually a cheaper cut of pork instead of loin and a small piece at that, with the potatoes, carrots and mushrooms.

It is still extremely popular although many people nowadays also cook it with chicken thighs or even a piece of beef instead of the traditional pork.
