Sun-Dried Tomato Scalloped Potatoes

My family was tired of my traditional scalloped potatoes. So when I came across this recipe featuring a pesto and sun-dried tomato sauce, I knew I had to try it. I'm so glad I did, and so is my family! —Jamie Milligan, Kimberley, British Columbia

    Made these for dinner last night and they were delicious. I followed the directions exactly and they turned out perfect. We all thought it was tasty and will definitely make these again. For those who say its not really scalloped potatoes because it doesn't have lots of sauce, not all scalloped potato recipes are the same. No, its not saucy, but that should be obvious from the recipe. In fact, scalloped potatoes have nothing to do with sauce, but instead a browned topping.

    Yummy! My only change was using herbs other than parsley because I didn't have fresh. I put in a few red potatoes because I didn't have seven cups of white potatoes and didn't peel them. We didn't find this recipe bland or dry at all. It tasted even better when I reheated the leftovers (microwave, then oven). My husband loved it!

    We love scalloped potatoes so I tried this recipe. Way too dry will not make it again. I liked the idea of adding the sun dried tomatoes so will add those to my recipe. Don't waste your time or ingredients on this recipe.

    My family loves sun-dried tomatoes - so it looked like the perfect dish. After the initial baking - even before uncovering it to bake an additional 15 minutes. The potatoes had absorbed all the liquid. The potatoes definitely needed more of a scalloped potato sauce - especially with the cheese. Unless I can think of a way to add a sauce of some kind - will not make again.
