  1. I really liked the texture of this dish, but I found it to be pretty bland. I think I'll make it again soon, but I'm gonna add some herbs and spices. Its a great base dish(: Thanks so much! :D
  2. These taters are amazingly delish! They are so fresh, juicy and yummy! Mmmm! The onion goes great with the tomato sauce and taters and I really like the texture of this dish. Its neither too soupy nor too thick. Just great. It also reheats well, which is always a plus.<br/>THANK YOU SO MUCH for sharing this great recipe with us, chocolatl!<br/>Made and reviewed for Zaar Stars Tag Game January 2011.
  3. This certainly made potatoes more interesting and was really easy! I liked that the sauce added flavour without too many extra calories- good for Weight Watchers. Next time, I'll probably add some garlic. Thanks for a lovely recipe!
  4. These were made with 3 large potatoes and it made 5 nice servings. I used my last jar of Recipe #243853 which I made at the end of last season with garden fresh tomatoes. This provides a nice fix for plain potatoes. Made for Zingo *ZWT 5*
  5. We really enjoyed these potatoes! I have a pretty picky family and the kids were asking for seconds, so that is always a good sign at my house!!! Thanks for posting. Made for ZWT 5


  1. so delicious, I love the tomato sauce addition, I made a few changes I used chicken stock in place of the water, I also added in 1/2 teaspoon cayenne pepper and added in 3 minced garlic cloves with the onions, so delicious, thank you Pat I will make this again soon, made for ZWT/Zingo
  2. This one just didn't thrill me the way I was expecting. We added a sprinkle of mozzarella to the top before serving. I used chives instead of onions. *ZWT 5 Groovy GastroGnomes* gallivanting the globe.
