This version of scalloped potatoes is not only higher in nutrients thanks to the added pumpkin puree, but it has aged goat cheese and garlic to liven the palate.

If you want to pre-make this for a gathering: Cook the dish for 30 minutes at 400 °F a day or two beforehand. Cool and cover, and place in the fridge. On the day you want to serve, cook for another 30 minutes at 400 °F to finish cooking all the way through. No one will know the difference!

Serve this dish hot and presented almost cake-like, sliced in wedged portions. It is best served with a fresh green salad and perhaps a grilled pork tenderloin or a mild white fish. If you prefer your meals without meat, this could also easily pair well with a bean patty or as a side to a freshly made omelette.
