Winter Vegetable Mash with Provolone

I have a few free magazine subscriptions that come from food companies- Kraft, Sobey's, All you need is Cheese are a few. I think there is one more but I can't think of it at the moment.

This month's All you need is Cheese -Winter 2011 features a section For Kids of all ages. In this issue they offered two different kid friendly recipes - Chicken and Mozzarella medallions and Winter vegetable mash with Provolone.

I don't know about you but I am starting to have a hard time to get my daughter A to eat her veggies without complaining. She used to be the girl that loved her veggies.  A does like her potatoes and she LOVES cheese. When I saw this recipe I was very excited to try it out and it looked pretty easy to make. I also love that after most of the recipes is a Cheese Alternative; this includes other cheeses that will go well instead of the listed cheese. I used Mozzarella cheese instead of Provolone. Everyone enjoyed this dish! The kids even noticed the carrots and ate with no issues.
