Skillet Squash and Potatoes Recipe
MY NIECE suggested I try cooking squash and potatoes together. I found that potatoes really do enhance the flavor of squash. I made up this recipe, and it turned out to be a keeper—a great side dish for any entree and a complement to other vegetables as well. —Bonnie Milner DeRidder, Louisiana
