This is my current favorite side dish to make. I've had it twice for dinner, and once for lunch this week. I have leftovers for this weekend also. It is super easy to make and very tasty. I tend to mix it up a bit and throw some squash or zucchini into the mix towards the end of the cooking time to get even more veggies in my meal. I imagine you can throw any other veggies you want in there too, such as carrots. The potatoes take the longest to cook, and I like to use red onions for flavor while they cook, so I just throw sliced squash in the last few minutes to warm it up and take the flavors since I don't like them to get soggy.
