The flavors in this recipe are great but I only gave it 3 stars because it needs some tweaking. There isn't enough cooking time for the potatoes to cook. I used red skins, thinly sliced, and baked the dish for 25 minutes and the potatoes still were hard. Topping with biscuits seemed like a fast, easy idea but I didn't like the texture. Next time, I will just make a crust for the top and saute the potatoes with the bell pepper. Also, a smaller (2qt.) dish would probably be more suitable.
