Mushroom and Potato Casserole


1 pound potatoes
1/2 pound mushrooms
1 garlic clove, chopped
Salt and pepper
2/3 cup light cream
2/3 cup heavy cream
1/4 cup water
1/4 cup grated Parmesan cheese


Peel the potatoes and slice thinly. Slice the mushrooms thicker than the potatoes. Using lots of butter, grease a 1-½-quart glass baking dish. Sprinkle the garlic on the bottom. Arrange half the potato slices in overlapping rows on the bottom of the dish. Season with salt and pepper. Arrange a layer of mushrooms on top and season with salt and pepper. Top it off with a layer of potatoes. Stir together the light cream, heavy cream, and water. Pour on top. Sprinkle with the Parmesan cheese and dot with more butter. Bake for about 1 hour at 350 degrees F, or until the potatoes are tender and the top is crisp. Remove from the oven and let stand for 5 to 10 minutes. Serve at once.
