English term or phrase:smithereens of reconstituted potato covered his shirt
frametti/frantumi/pezzetti di purè di patate........
Explanation: 'smithereens' is usually used to describe tiny broken pieces of ceramic, glass etc - not usually soft substances.Maybe 'pezzetti' would work better in Italian?
'reconstituted potato' is dried potato flakes made into a puree by adding milk/water.
