Italian Cheese Mashed Potatoes

Occasionally even mashed potatoes need an update and what better than with some creamy Mascarpone cheese and a touch of salty Parmesan cheese blended together.  






Italian Cheese Mashed Potatoes

2# potatoes (I used russet), peeled and sliced
1 tsp salt
1/2 cup Mascarpone cheese, room temperature
1/3 cup Parmesan cheese, freshly grated
2 tbsp butter
1 tsp parsley
Salt and freshly ground pepper to taste

Cook the potatoes with salt in a large saucepan until fork tender.  Drain and mash with the butter and cheese.  Add parsley and season to taste.
