Expert Tips

Compared to other types of potatoes, less of the sugar in red potatoes has converted to starch. Consequently, red potatoes have a crisp texture and hold their shape during cooking. Size B small red potatoes are 2 to 3 inches in size and make attractive slices. For this recipe, cut potatoes at least 1/4 inch thick.

Alfredo sauce from a jar can be used in place of refrigerated sauce; use 1 1/4 cups.

The flavor of dill weed complements potatoes as well as green peas. Add 1 teaspoon of dried dill weed to the cooker when you add the peas.
