Author Notes: I could only find a large rutabaga today, I bought too many parsnips and carrots for an earlier recipe. What to do, what to do. So, I had all of our favorite roots in the house. It was suggested by my non-cooking husband to put them all together and mash away. So mash I did. Sometimes the most simple things are the best.GiGi26
