While Chef de Home’s recipe made for a fantastic foundation, I made some adjustments based on my 1st and 2nd time making it – you need more vegetables to fill even just a small casserole dish, and while they preferred to leave the tomato sauce up to you, I like using pre-packaged items that not only taste good, but are good for you. If I don’t have the time to make the tomato sauce myself, the whole30 compliant version I found will work perfectly! They also used bell pepper, but it doesn’t fit the circular theme that’s going on, so I swapped for tomato – yes, it’s more watery, BUT you almost need that for the sauce to loosen it up and really ensure all your veggies are covered. The bechamel is a GREAT addition of creaminess to this recipe, but I did add reduce the milk (you don’t need 1 cup), and added salt/pepper. I will also say, you don’t have to boil the potatoes – you slice them so thin anyway, they’re perfect cooking with the rest of the veggies.
