This was a yummy lowfat casserole! I halved the recipe. I didn't have any red potatoes, so I used sliced russets, and I used gold sweet pepper instead of red, and stone ground mustard instead of dijon :) I think next time, I will use a little less mustard, but that could be because I used the stone ground. Thanks for the recipe! :)
