    SaraFish's Note:

    I'm doing Weight Watchers and I'm really missing rich cheesy foods like scalloped potatoes so I developed this dish using fat free and low fat dairy products and it's so good! Hope you like it too!

      This was excellent, I made one substitution. I only had vanilla lowfat yogurt and used that instead. I dont know if it affected the taste but everyone really enjoyed them.

      Wow, I was in potato heaven last night. I made these almost exactly as written except for two things: I had a craving for mashed potatoes and somehow didn't realize that this recipe wasn't for mashed. So before putting them in the casserole dish to bake, I mashed them up so that they were chunky mashed potatoes rather than cubed. I also substituted non fat sour cream instead of fat-free yogurt and it turned out really tasty. I can't believe that these are fat free because they taste soooo good. It also makes a ton, so I have a good amount of leftovers. Thanks for a great recipe!

      These are tasty and easy to make. The only thing I omitted was the green onion as I didn't have any. This is a keeper.
