Italian Potato And Cheese Recipe

Italian Potato And Cheese               

2 lb. russet potatoes
6 Tbsp. butter
1/2 tsp. salt and more to taste
1 1/2 lb. ripe tomatoes
pepper to taste
1 1/2 tsp. basil, crushed
2/3 lb. Mozzarella cheese
6 hard-boiled eggs
2/3 c. chopped fresh parsley
1/2 c. fresh grated Parmesan cheese

Boil the potatoes until they are just barely tender. Drain, peel and cut them crosswise in fairly thick slices. Melt the butter and pour 2 tablespoons of it over the bottom of a large, shallow casserole. Arrange the potato slices in the casserole in one layer and salt them. Slice the tomatoes and arrange the tomato slices on top of the potatoes. Sprinkle the tomatoes with salt and pepper and the 1 1/2 teaspoons basil. Slice the Mozzarella, cut the slices into wide strips and arrange the strips on top of the tomatoes. Peel and coarsely chop the eggs, combine them in a bowl with the remaining 4 tablespoons melted butter, the chopped parsley, 1/2 teaspoon salt and some pepper. Toss the mixture together until it is thoroughly mixed. Spread the egg mixture evenly over the cheese. Sprinkle the casserole with the Parmesan cheese and bake it in a preheated oven at 350 degrees for 25 to 30 minutes. Serves 5 to 6.
