Parmesan Mashed Potatoes

I finally got back to this recipe idea from a few weeks ago when I made the Italian Chicken Pot Pie but opted to top it with biscuits instead of these potatoes.  They are a great side for any protein and so tasty that no additional toppings are needed although I did sprinkle a pinch of Parmesan on each serving for fun.
 
 



Parmesan Mashed Potatoes
 
3# red potatoes, peeled and slice into small pieces
Salt for water
3 tbsp butter, softened
½ cup milk
Salt to taste
1/2 tsp freshly ground black pepper
½ cup Parmesan cheese
1 tsp parsley

Boil potatoes in salted water until fork tender.  Drain and add in butter to melt.  Mash until smooth and add in milk, Parmesan cheese and spices.
