    love simplicity of your recipe! 4 stars just for that.
    I adjusted it a bit to use what I had on hand:
    8 red potatoes - a little creamier than russets so needed less milk
    1/2 c. 2% milk
    2 T Smart Balance 50/50
    finished w/ 5 cloves minced garlic & 1 sprig rosemary + salt & pepper to taste
