Mild Vegetable and Meat Combo

Time needed: 1 hour

I think I spent twice as much time chopping and slicing the vegetables as I did on cooking this dish. The actual time at the stove is about 20 minutes and you need to have all your ingredients on hand for quick work. For me, it was also an unusual process. But the finished dish is well worth the making of it.

Golden Parsley Potatoes

A nice variation on scalloped potatoes. To provide flavour beyond pepper and salt, I enhanced the recipe in the following ways: added rosemary to the cooking water for the potatoes, added a pinch each of garlic powder and cayenne pepper along with pepper and salt to the main dish and the cottage cheese topping. I think my main problem was too many potatoes (I used four and three would have been adequate) without increasing the amounts of shredded cheese and cottage cheese topping as well.
