Claudia-Scalloped potatoes are my alltime favorite comfort potatoes in the world...with the cheesy goodness of the cheddar and the parmesan cheese...I'm in heaven. Your potatoes look so creamy ooey-goey yummy. We really should get together soon since we live so close to each other and cook up a storm!
BTW-your photos are getting more and more awesome!

It uses milk and not cream (yay. All that cheesey goodness makes me yearn for it (I am part mouse). I could eat it all for dinner and never look back.

Cheese and potatoes with an Italian twist . . . how can you go wrong with this combination? So perfect! I'll definitely prepare this recipe as we always have had just plain old, plain old scalloped potatoes. . . . my Italian family never ventured in this realm, so I MUST try!
