In saucepan of boiling salted water, cook potatoes until almost tender; let cool enough to handle. Peel and cut into 1/4-inch (5 mm) thick slices.

Meanwhile, cut tomatoes into 1/4-inch (5 mm) thick slices; layer in colander over bowl, sprinkling layers with salt. Weigh down with a few plates; let stand for 20 minutes. Press to remove excess liquid.

Spread half of the oil in 8-cup (2 L) gratin dish or shallow baking dish. Cover bottom with half of the potatoes; sprinkle with 1 tbsp of the flour. Top with half of the tomatoes. Sprinkle with half each of the rosemary and pepper.

Cut off rind from edge of cheese, leaving top and bottom attached; slice lengthwise into scant 1/4-inch (5 mm) thick slices. Lay half the slices over tomatoes. Sprinkle with 1 tbsp of the remaining flour. Top with remaining potatoes, flour, tomatoes, rosemary and pepper; cover with foil.

Bake in 400°F (200°C) oven for 40 minutes. Top with remaining cheese; bake, uncovered, until cheese is melted and light golden, about 5 minutes. Remove from oven; cover with foil and let stand for 10 minutes before serving.

Makes 6 servings.
