Yield: 2 servings
Time needed: 45 minutes

This is a low-fat variation on scalloped potatoes. The vegetables are cooked in water, not milk and very little cream or butter is used. There is less time in the oven as well, since the potatoes are parboiled first.  If you get new crop potatoes, they don’t even need to be peeled.
