Recipe by Patricia Monson
"I wanted something different, other than scalloped or au gratin potatoes, and liked the different colors of the potatoes and spinach. A nice side dish for holiday baked ham. Nice because I did it all ahead of time and then just reheated it."

I truly didn't expect to like this recipe but I ended up two servings for lunch! I cut the recipe down to 2 servings and used 5 golf ball sized red potatoes. I added some nutmeg to the cheese sauce. I used Krazy Mixed Up Salt (which is basically a blend of salt, pepper and garlic powder) to sprinkle on the potatoes when layering. I didn't have pimento so I used finely diced red bell pepper. The small casserole baked for 30 minutes with the foil then about 10 minutes after removal. I think that the potatoes were overdone and if I make this again I will not precook the potatoes. Thanks!
Made it today.Came out very nice and will make it again.
Made this for dinner tonight. Huge hit with my family...even my spinach-hating husband. I didn't have pimentos but it turned out beautifully without them. Thanks SO much for sharing this recipe. A definite keeper!
