Mozzarella and Potato Pie

This dish was a hit!!!  My kids said it smelled like pizza. ;-) Enjoy!

2 pound potatoes
1/2 pound fresh mozzarella balls
1/2 cup grated Parmesan
3 tomatoes
1 oz butter (2 TB)
1/4 cup milk
1 tsp oregano
1 tsp basil
pepper & salt to taste

Peel and boil the potatoes in salted water for 25 minutes.
When tender mash them. (I had little helpers for this part)
Add 1 oz of butter and 1/4 cup warm milk and kept mashing. (The mashed potatoes will stay thick and firm, but that’s okay.)
Season with salt and pepper.
Spread the potatoes in a baking dish.
Thinly slice the mozzarella and the (peeled) tomatoes.
Place half the mozzarella on top of the mashed potatoes.
Put the tomato slices on top of the mozzarella.
Sprinkle the dried basil and oregano all over the tomatoes.
Cover the tomatoes with the remaining mozzarella.
And grate the Parmesan all over the casserole.
Place the casserole or pie into a preheated oven and bake at 400F˚ (200C˚) for 25 to 30 minutes.

* You want the cheese to be a nice golden brown color.
