In my estimation this dish is really outstanding. What a delightful change from the heavy fat laden scalloped potato's. The flavor is bright, fresh and very well balanced. I made two small servings for DH and I, I'm glad I didn't make more because I'd be dipping into it! I used a single slice of fresh tomato between the potato's and sprinkled the herbs onto it, I was concerned that there wouldn't be enough moisture with none added but it baked beautifully at 40 mins and there was plenty of moisture. This dish was served with a tomato and basil baked chicken breast and steamed broccoli. Thank you Sharlene for my new favorite way to make potato's.
