Skillet Squash and Potatoes

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

    I found this recipe last year when trying to find new ways to cook squash. It is amazing. We eat this weekly when we get squash from the garden. I like to add whatever meat we have on hand, left over chicken, sausage, or ham taste great with this dish. You can also make it with tony creole if you want a little extra spice.
