The ricotta cheese in this dish adds both cheesy flavor and tang to these mashed potatoes.


  • 2 pounds potatoes
  • 2 teaspoons salt
  • 1-1/2 cups fresh ricotta

  • 3 tablespoons butter
  • 1/2 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper


  1. Peel the potatoes and cut into approximately 1-inch pieces.
  2. Put potatoes in a large pot, add a sprinkle of salt and fill with water until potatoes are covered. Bring the contents of the pot to a boil and cook for about 20 minutes or until potatoes are tender.
  3. Drain the liquid from the potatoes and then mash with a fork or potato masher.
  4. Blend in the ricotta, milk, butter, remaining salt, and pepper. Serve immediately.
