REVIEW: 5 star recipe rating
We had this for dinner Monday night, using some extra broccoli leftover from the day before. Even though the recipe doesn't say what to do with it, I just chopped it in 1/2-inch pieces and stirred it in with the reserved potatoes and cheese. I also modified the recipe a bit by cooking the potatoes directly in a quart of boxed organic broth, then scooping out some of the cooked potatoes and pureeing the rest right in the pan with a hand-held drink mixer. I added quite a bit of salt (2 teaspoons) and some fresh ground pepper. Even my kids who were skeptical gave it the thumbs-up after they tried it.
