Yield: 8 Servings
Prep Time: 20 Minutes
Cook Time: 1 Hours 35 Minutes
1 lb. red potatoes
1 lb. Yukon Gold potatoes
1 1/4 cups vegetable broth or stock
1/2 cup shredded Parmesan cheese
1 teaspoon garlic salt
4 oz. Neufchatel (1/3-less fat) cream cheese
4 oz. fat-free cream cheese or 1/2 cup shredded fat-free Cheddar cheese
1 (7.5-oz.) jar marinated artichoke hearts, drained and chopped
1 (6-oz.) bag baby spinach, coarsely chopped
1/2 cup sliced green onions
Preheat oven to 425°F and coat a 9-inch square baking dish with nonstick cooking spray. Cut
potatoes in half lengthwise. Place cut side down on a board and slice very thinly. Place in a large
bowl and set aside. Heat broth, Parmesan, garlic salt, cheeses and artichoke hearts in a medium
saucepan until cheeses are melted. Stir in spinach and cook until wilted. Stir mixture into potatoes
with green onions, mixing well to coat potatoes as evenly as possible. Spread in prepared dish and
bake for 30 minutes. Cover loosely with foil and reduce temperature to 375°F; cook for 1 hour more
or until potatoes are tender when pierced with a fork. Makes 8 servings.
Quick Tip: To shave an hour off the cook time, boil potatoes for 5 minutes or until tender, then drain
well. Prepare as directed above then bake at 425°F for 30 minutes.
