Two-Potato Gratin

Loved this creamy gratin recipe from "Cooking Light". There was some prep work, but it can be done ahead of time and then baked later. This is a perfect accompaniment to chicken, beef or pork! I made this with Italian Chicken with Lemon Butter Sauce, Peas and a Green Salad. I have adapted the instructions for this recipe to make it a little easier. Hope you like it! serves 8 ( 6 points +)
