1 pound Yukon Gold potatoes , peeled and cut into 1-inch chunks

2 cups water

Pinch ground nutmeg

¾ cup (about 2 ½ ounces) freshly grated Parmesan cheese

½ tsp. salt

¼ tsp. coarsely ground black pepper

Meanwhile, preheat broiler and set oven rack 6 inches from source of heat. Drain vegetables in colander set over large bowl, reserving ¼ cup vegetable cooking liquid. Return vegetables to saucepan. With potato masher or slotted spoon, coarsely mash vegetables, adding some reserved cooking liquid if mixture seems dry. Stir in nutmeg, ¼ cup Parmesan, ½ teaspoon salt, and ¼ teaspoon pepper.
