  • Garlic salt to taste
DIRECTIONS
  1. Boil the squash and potato until soft.
  2. Mash.

  4. Add salt and pepper if desired.
RECIPE BACKSTORY
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.
