Ingredients

  • 1 large potato, russet or Yukon gold, quartered (should make 1 ¼ cups when mashed)
  • 2 cups low fat ricotta cheese
  • 1 Tbsp. arrowroot starch

  • ¾ cup milk
  • ½ tsp. sea salt
  • 1 cup Gruyere or cheddar cheese, divided
  • 2 garlic cloves, minced
  • ¼ cup chopped parsley
  • Instructions

  • Preheat oven to 350 F. Generously oil a 2-quart casserole dish with cooking oil or non-stick cooking spray
  • Boil potatoes in salted water until tender. About 10 minutes, then drain
  • In a food processor add cooked potatoes, ricotta cheese, arrowroot starch and eggs. Process until creamy. Add milk, sea salt, ¾ cup cheese, garlic and parsley. Process just until all the ingredients are mixed
  • Transfer mixture into prepared casserole dish and bake for 1 hour. Top with remaining cheese and bake for 15 more minutes or until the cheese is bubbling
  • Rest for 15 minutes before serving
  • Note: if you do not have a food processor, mash the potatoes first, then using an electric mixer follow the recipe
