  2. Peel and slice potatoes.  Place in 2-quart casserole. Add 1/4 cup butter
 and the salt.  Mash until no lumps remain. Mix in pineapple. Microwave at
 HIGH (100%) 2 minutes.  Stir and set aside.
 
  3. Place 1 tablespoon brown sugar, 1 tablespoon butter, the water,
 cinnamon, and nutmeg in medium bowl. Microwave at HIGH (100%) until butter
 is melted, 1 to 1 1/2 minutes, stirring after half the time. Add
 marshmallows; toss to coat. Top sweet potato mixture with marshmallows.
 Microwave at HIGH (100 % until the marshmallows are melted and potatoes are
 heated through, 2 to 4 minutes. Sprinkle with pecans.
