This is a potato side dish with real flavor, though at the cost of a few calories. It was very popular at a recent buffet party and rewarms very well in the oven.

Prep   -   (45 min)
  1. Preheat Oven to 350°F/175°C.
  2. Trim stem ends from MUSHROOMS and slice vertically just a bit thicker than 1/8 inch.
  3. Peel POTATOES and cut into quarters lengthwise if large. Slice crosswise about 1/4 inch thick.
  4. Crush GARLIC and chop fine. Chop PARSLEY and BASIL fairly coarse. Grate ROMANO. Mix all with Breadcrumbs, Salt and Pepper.
  5. In an oven-proof dish about 10 inches in diameter, pour 1 T Olive Oil and wipe it all over the bottom and sides. Arrange half the Potato slices tightly in a single layer in the bottom. Sprinkle lightly with salt, then arrange half the mushrooms over them. Sprinkle half the Herb Mix over those. Pour 2 T Olive Oil over the layer.
  6. Repeat with the remaining Potatoes, Mushrooms and Herb mix. Pour 3 T Olive Oil over the top and cover with Aluminum Foil (see Note-3).
Run   -   (1 hr)
  1. Bake at 350°F/175°C for about 45 minutes, then remove the foil and bake another 15 minutes or until lightly browned. If pre-made and refrigerated, let it warm to room temperature before going into the oven.
  2. Serve warm. You can serve in the baking dish, or scooped out into a warmer (more practical for buffet), or in individual servings.
NOTES:
  1. Mushrooms:   White mushrooms or Crimini are appropriate for this dish.
  2. Potatoes:   Russets will be fine here because they are baked without being disturbed and there is little moisture in the recipe.
  3. Layering:   I have made this in two layers as per the pattern recipe, and also as three layers when I had to fit a smaller dish. Both worked just fine, but 3 layers needs about 15 minutes more time because it's thicker.
  4. U.S. measure: t=teaspoon, T=Tablespoon, c=cup, qt=quart, oz=ounce, #=pound, cl=clove in=inch, ar=as required tt=to taste
