I am puzzled that this recipe had such a luke-warm rating. I had some leftover mascarpone cheese from another recipe and a need for mashed potatoes to serve over shepherd's pie and so I thought I would give them a try. They are as advertised--very creamy. I did watch the video, which I'm glad I did because the woman uses the cheese with the milk for mashing and folds in the chives, which is an important distinction, I thought. That said, everyone agrees they're yummy! Would make again.
