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.

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.

A dash of local for every season
