Another great find on the Kraft recipe site. It takes a little preparation, but well worth the while. Great as a side dish or even just to serve on its own! My family loves vegetables and they certainly love this.

Delicious, rich veggie lasagna with potatoes and sweet potatoes instead of noodles! I used local veggies from the winter farmers' market, and the spinach and cheese complemented the combo of potatoes. I made for Best of 2010 Cookbook Tag. Thanks for a new favorite!

Fabulous dish. Made as directed using an entire 8 ounce brick of cream cheese. This is also gorgeous and worthy of celebrations such as brunch, Easter, etc. This is going into my Best of 2010 cookbook! Thanks, Tisme, for a real hit! Made for Photo Recipe Swap tag game.

What a great veggie dish! I used 8 baby red Norland potatoes, 3 medium sweet potatoes and a 6 oz package of fresh baby spinach leaves. I blanched the spinach leaves for about a minute and then shocked them in some ice water. Using the same water, I sliced the potatoes into ¼ inch slices and parboiled them for about 8 minutes. I used a wonderful local sharp cheddar for the cheese. I took the precaution and lined my 9 ½ spring form pan with foil….as I don’t trust it to be liquid tight anymore. Popped it into the oven at 375F for 40 minutes and it was done to perfection. I alternated the white and orange colored potato slices into a spiral on both the top and bottom layer….With the dark green of the spinach and the light green of the leek sandwiched in between …it was almost too pretty to eat….but we did!!!!
