Pre heat oven to 400 degrees F with the rack in the middle. Prepare a baking sheet with tin foil or a Silpat liner. Toss sweet potato slices in olive oil, garlic salt, pepper & smoked paprika.

Cover casserole dish with tin foil. Bake for 60 minutes. Carefully remove the foil & broil for 5 -10 minutes. Cheese should be slightly browned & bubbling. Be sure it does not burn. Remove from oven & let sit a few minutes. Sauce will thicken as the casserole cools.
