Bell pepper & potato gratin

I absolutely love gratin potatoes in all its forms, but not all the fat and gooey cheese. So I made this which came out so scrumptious that you won't miss all the fat. These potatoes go very well w/ a herb-roasted chicken dish. Please make sure to use fresh thyme, it makes a BIG difference.
