  1. Preheat the oven to 375 degrees F.
  2. Brush a 9 by 13 by 2-inch baking dish with olive oil.
  3. In a medium saute pan, heat 2 tablespoons of olive oil and cook the onions over medium-low heat for 8 to 10 minutes, until translucent.

  8. Cover the dish with aluminum foil and bake for 35 to 40 minutes, until the potatoes are tender.

  10. Serve warm.

I've made this dish several times. It is easy and excellent. I enjoy serving it for a family meal or when we have company. It is often requested by my husband. I love so many recipes by Ina Garten.

I was just looking for a way to use up some veggies I had in the house already, and was so very happy with the results!
I halve the ingredients, since i lack a proper casserole dish. My pie plate works great though!
It was so easy and delicious! I am definitely making this again.

Delicious and healthy. Really simple to make using a mandolin.
