Hello Potato

a) Boil a full kettle. Meanwhile, chop the potatoes into 2cm chunks (no need to peel). Peel the garlic cloves, keeping them whole. 

b) Pour the boiling water from your kettle into a large saucepan with 0.5 tsp salt. Add the potatoes and peeled garlic cloves to the water.

c) Cook until you can easily slip a knife through the potatoes, 15-18 mins.

Warm your Marinara Lava

a) While the potatoes boil, grate the cheese.

b) Once the potatoes and garlic are cooked, drain in a colander and return both to the pan off the heat. Mash until smooth.

c) Once mashed, mix through the peas. Taste and season with salt and pepper if needed. Cover to keep warm.

d) In a small saucepan, heat the marinara sauce on medium heat until piping hot, 2-3 mins. Remove from the heat and cover to keep warm.

Create the Volcano!

a) Serve the mashed potatoes in the shape of a volcano, creating a shallow hole through the centre to pour the marinara sauce into.

b) Sprinkle over the grated cheese to finish.
