I was thinking about heritage after Molly's and Helen's posts this week - and perhaps this dish showcases mine - Irish and Italian! But - it is a bit odd, also from the 1965 Betty Crocker's Dinner in a Dish, and I'd certainly never serve that odd tower of olives in front there.
1 pkg. of our scalloped potatoes (must be Betty Crocker)
1 can (1 lb.) tomatoes
1 1/2 cups water
1/4 tsp. crushed oregano
1 pkg. (4 oz.) sliced pepperoni
1 cup shredded mozzarella cheese
Heat oven to 400F. Empty potato slices and seasoned sauce mix into baking dish, 9x9x2. Heat tomatoes, water, and oregano to boiling. Pour over potatoes; stir until well mixed. Arrange pepperoni on top and sprinkle with cheese. Bake uncovered 30 - 35 min. Garnish with hot peppers, if desired. 4 servings. (??? That would be huge portions...)
Love the pepper flower in the middle, too...
