DIRECTIONS

  • Set a pan of water to boil.
  • Peel the potatoes and chop them into eighths.
  • Put them in the pan of hot water to boil for 15-20 minutes, until cooked.
  • Meanwhile, chop the cherry tomatoes into eighths and set aside.
  • Add the pine nuts to the tomatoes.
  • Finely chop the fresh basil leaves into the tomato mixture.
  • When the potatoes are cooked and soft, mash them.
  • Stir the cream cheese and olive oil into the mashed potatoes. Season with salt and pepper to taste.
  • Add the tomato mixture to the mashed potatoes and mix gently.
  • Add the mozzarella cheese to the mashed potatoes and gently stir to mix. Do not stir too much as the mozzarella can become "stringy" if mixed too much.
  • Serve hot!
  • Note: These mashed potatoes can also be stored in the fridge and reheated in the microwave if you have leftovers!
