Adrian, I LOVE this recipe and it's a winter warmer in our house. I've also had great success with Desiree potatoes and the investment in a schiacciapatate (ricer) well worth the investment. Def channels your "inner nonna" When I want to add just a few more calories, I dry pan fry some prosciutto until crisp then cool and crumble as crispy shards over the top just before serving. Scrumdiddlyumptious! I wish Boys Weekend was on again!
