With the holidays coming and the wonderful dinners that we will create we deserve special mashed potatoes.

Ricotta adds a cheesy tang to these rich and fluffy mashed potatoes that will set them apart and go well with that special dinner.

You may also put the potatoes before browning in single serve ramekins to add to the elegance and make each guest feel special.
