    ladypit's Note:

    For some reason we had stopped eating potatoes. I honestly don't know why. But lately I have re-discovered them and this is one we have enjoyed. This is a slight adaptation from "500 Fat Free Recipes." I have added a little fat to it (the original calls for fat free parmesean which I can no longer find), but it is still quite reasonable in my mind. Also, the original called for putting all the cheese on the top. We felt like a little in the middle would have helped, so I am writing it that way. Feel free to play around with it!

      Oh my goodness. Was this delish. I loved it and so did my son. Picky hubby not so much. I knew that and made him french fries. It had nothing to do with the dish. I used whole milk it was all I had. I didnt use measuring spoons, just eyeballed the pepper measurements in my hand. This is a keeper. Thanks so much, Ladypit. This will get lost of use in my house.

      Deceptively delicious recipe - more than the sum of its parts. Not your average scalloped-type potatoes recipe, and an extra bonus for being lower in fat. We actually used 2% milk as well (which was what we had in the fridge), waxy yellow potatoes and all the parmesan cheese (I've never found a fat free kind). Putting a layer of cheese in the middle was a great idea, gave it a little more interesting texture. The cheese and onion together gave this a great nutty/sweet taste. WOW! Thanks ladypit:D

      Very good, especially for so little fat! The sauce was a little thin for us - but I used Wondra instead of cornstarch so maybe that's why (or my potatos just didn't soak it up). Everyone enjoyed this easy side and I have a feeling it's going to be made quite a lot from now on. Thanks!
