1 1/2 pounds small red potatoes (about 9 potatoes)
2/3 cup fat-free milk
2 tablespoons extravirgin olive oil or butter
1/4 cup shredded fresh Parmigiano-Reggiano cheese
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper


1. Place potatoes in a large saucepan, and cover with water; bring to a boil. Cover, reduce heat, and simmer 15 minutes or until potatoes are tender.

2. Drain potatoes well; return to pan. Add milk and olive oil to hot potatoes, and coarsely mash. Fold in cheese, salt, and pepper.

Note: Add just enough water to cover the potatoes. Any more will only lengthen the time it takes to bring the water to a boil, therefore increasing your cook time.
