Skillet Squash and Potatoes

Rated as 4.5 out of 5 Stars

"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"

My husband loved it! Even my kids who balk at squash ate it up. I think I cut the potatoes too thin because they all stuck to the bottom. I'll try them thicker next time.

This recipe is so good. I have made it three times in the past month. My boyfriend even likes it a bunch. Adding paprika really brings out the flavor. I actually have this recipe committed t...

I'm not a huge fan of summer squash, but we got a bunch of them in our CSA box this week so I had to figure out how to use them. I was surprised at how much I liked this dish. It's so simple but...

Although the squash and potato do make a good combo, I thought the dish needed more flavor. The paprika did not do it for me.

Thanks for this easy, delicious side dish. It's easy and delicious just as it is. Yesterday, I had a couple of roma tomatoes I needed to use, so I quartered and added them to the mix. Not only...

I really liked how simple this was to put together, and how good it tastes. Next time I will cook the potatoes a bit longer, and experiment with some other/more seasonings. As it is, I ate the...

This was a very good side dish. I was looking for a recipe to use potatoes and yellow squash from the garden. My whole family loved it!
