This was awesome. I don't think I'll ever make plain mashed potatos again. I had to sub cottage cheese for the ricotta, so it was a little runnier than I care for, but think will be perfect with ricotta. I also added a little more onion than called for, but that was personal preference. Thanks for a great recipe.
