Skillet Squash and Potatoes

Once again, I'm in search of way to use up my bounty of squash. This recipe was posted to and was submitted by Bonnie Milner who had this to say: "My niece suggested I try cooking squash and potatoes together. I found that potatoes really do enhance the flavor of squash. I made up this recipe, and it turned out to be a keeper--a great side dish for any entree and a complement to other vegetables as well. --Bonnie Milner DeRidder, Louisiana"
