    justcallmetoni's Note:

    When my nephew was just three, I made potatoes Dauphinoise for Mother’s Day. He spent the evening nibbling on "dolphin potatoes." That memory came back to me as this was in the oven and has been named for him. The preparation of this Italian-French inspired dish goes quickly and leaves you with a lovely company worthy dish, but don’t let that stop you from making it for the family. The best part is no one will know that the sinfully rich sauce is light and low-fat.

      I've made this recipe twice now~ once with potatoes and once with sweet potatoes. Our family prefers the sweet potatoes. Other than that, I did everything per the recipe. I keep cooked cubed chicken breast in the freezer so I used those. Great flavors~ even my picky 7 year old loved it (especially the "dolphin" part!) Thanks for posting toni!

      What a wonderful dish! I only made a few slight changes to suit my famlies taste. For one I just scaled it down a bit since it is just me and my mother, also I carmelized my onions before adding the spinach and I used more wine than broth as well and also used cornstarch. All in all a great dish when I have the the time to throw it together, but the next time I have left over cooked chicken and baked potatos (which happens a lot) I will try this again to speed up the cooking and prep of the recipe and tell you how it goes.

      Really excellent dish. More prep then I usually would do for a weeknight, but it gave me a chance to use my mandolin (that dh brought into the marriage almost 10 years ago and I have never used!). I used a little more basil then called for and left out the oregano (didn't have any). Very good taste. I used the arrowroot and a sweet white wine. This smelled so good while each section was cooking and was a lovely presentation. Dh put some parmesean on his but I thought mine was perfect as is! Thanks Toni! This one is wonderful!
