“Here's another recipe I haven't tried yet, but plan to. Found it in a Taste of Home Magazine and described as: Tender potato slices in this cozy casserole have a mild fennel flavor with a hint of nutmeg. Add a creamy sauce and a sprinkling of Parmesan and you have a homey side dish. Sounds interesting doesn't it! Serves 12 so I'd probably have to cut it in half but would be perfect for a large gathering”
