Mashed Potatoes with Butternut Squash
For ultrafluffy potatoes, Grace Parisi presses them through a ricer. To achieve a similar texture, pass the potatoes through a food mill or a fine-mesh sieve. If you choose to mash them by hand, be gentle; otherwise, the potatoes will turn gluey.
Chef Andrew Carmellini prepares this dish with homemade bread crumbs and hard-to-find Sicilian oregano. To speed up this delicious side, top spicy greens with crispy panko (packaged Japanese bread crumbs) and a touch of supermarket oregano.
