Notes

I've been messing around with random ingredients and recipe modifications lately, and this one actually turned out to be kick-ass!

I think you can substitute any variation of the ingredients I used, so I listed the ones I actually used in parentheses.

This recipe can be easily doubled or tripled...or quadrupled! The key part is having equal potatoes and squash. Everything else is pretty much to taste.
