Mashed Yellow Squash
Why I Love This Recipe
I've asked my friend Lisa to send me some of her recipes, since I want to learn to cook. I also got her to join Bakespace, but I doubt she is ever going to be very active. So I decided to post her recipe instead of waiting for her to do it.
This dish is a good replacement for mashed potatoes, in my opinion. The parmesan cheese is a wonderful added flavor! I added garlic salt to her original recipe, because, well, I love garlic.
Ingredients You'll Need
1 or 2 pounds of any type of yellow squash, skinned, seeded, and cut into 1 1/2 inch cubes
1 medium potato, cut up, peeled if desired (but the peel has most of the nutrition and actually has a good flavor to add)
1/2 cup fresh grated parmesan-reggiano cheese
1/4 cup milk, or to taste
Garlic salt to taste
Boil the squash and potato until soft.
Add cheese, then milk, stir well.
Add salt and pepper if desired.
