- In a covered large saucepan, cook potatoes in enough boiling water to cover for 15 to 20 minutes or until tender; drain.
- Meanwhile, place ricotta cheese and cottage cheese in a food processor or blender. Cover and process or blend until smooth. Transfer mixture to a large bowl; add Gorgonzola cheese, rosemary, garlic powder, pepper, and salt.
- Immediately add hot cooked potatoes to the cheese mixture. Beat with an electric mixer on low speed for 30 seconds. Beat on high speed for 2 minutes more. Transfer potato mixture to a serving bowl. Serve immediately.
