Italian Mashed Potatoes - Instructions

Place the potatoes and 1 tablespoon salt in a large saucepan and add enough cold water
to cover the potatoes by 1 inch. Bring to a boil over high heat, reduce the heat to
medium and simmer until the potatoes are tender when pierced with a knife, 15 to 20
minutes. Drain well in a colander.

Place the potatoes back into the pot, add the roasted garlic pulp, butter and 1/2 cup
of the half & half. Mash the potato mixture until the desired consistency. Add more
half & half to thin the mixture as needed and stir in the rosemary.

Season to taste with salt and pepper. Transfer the potatoes to a serving dish and
serve immediately.

Serves 4 to 6.
