I have to tell you I am so glad I found this recipe. What a wonderful way to dress up instant mased potatoes (which I usually won't touch) This has made a believer out of me and my DH that we will always now keep a box of them in the pantry and ready. It went together easy and the added flavor of the parmesan cheese was perfect. The final texture was so smooth and soft and add to that it looked great too, you'd have thought I'd slaved on it. Made this to serve with Roasted String Beans and Delicious Lemon-Dill Chicken and they all went well together and looked very appealing on the plate with lots of color. Thanks so much for a wonderful dinner. Made for PAC Fall -09
