I made this for my lunch today so I scaled the recipe down to 1 serving and it was great! I used a yellow squash from my mom's garden, 1 small potato and 1/2 of an onion. I did skip the flour and used Jane's Krazy Mixed-Up Salt. Very tasty! Thanks so much for posting!!

Delicious! A keeper for sure! We don't care for a lot of onions, so I just used dehydrated minced onions. They still added a lot of flavor. Thanks!
