  1. Place the potatoes into a large pot and cover with salted water. Bring to a boil over high heat, then reduce heat to medium-low, cover, and simmer until tender, about 20 minutes. Drain and allow to steam dry for a minute or two.
  2. Meanwhile, heat the olive oil in a saucepan over medium heat. Stir in the red and yellow bell pepper, and cook until the peppers begin to soften, about 3 minutes. Stir in the flour, and cook for 3 minutes more. Pour in the chicken broth, and bring to a boil over medium-high heat. Reduce heat to medium-low and simmer gently for 15 minutes. Season to taste with black pepper.
  3. Once the potatoes have finished draining, return them to the pot along with the baby spinach, Parmesan cheese, bacon bits, and garlic; mash until smooth. Fold in the butter and cream until incorporated and season to taste with salt and pepper. Serve the mashed potatoes alongside the bell pepper gravy.

My sister and I made this for a Christmas dinner (with roast and sauteed portobello mushrooms), and it was fantastic. The only change we made was to use real bacon, because we had some on hand. ...

I have never liked spinach, but once I tried this, I just fell in love! I always serve it with emerals seasoning! This is the best side dish I've ever made,it goes good with just about every din...

I used real bacon instead of bacon bits and skipped the pepper gravy. It was good, and I'll make it again. I'll roast the garlic next time. Thanks for sharing!

Fantastic meal! Only difference I made was to make my own bacon bits and then fry the peppers in some of the fat left over. My husband and I really enjoyed this meal, our youngest didnĀ“t even wa...

Fabulous! I did not make the gravy for the potatoes as the recipe suggested. They were great and super easy for my dinner party.

This was a really good recipe. You can't taste the spinach in the potatoes at all..so a good way to sneak in some veggies! The bell pepper gravy was really good. I love the combination. I'm a...

The bellpepper gravy was amazing. I think I will use red potatoes next time and real bacon and I like the suggestion of mushrooms.

I didn't think this had great flavor but I like the idea. I'll keep playing with it.

Great unique recipe! The gravy has a lot of flavor and is so yummy, and the spinach is a great way to switch up your mashed potato recipe.
