Creamed pumpkin potatoes

Any kind of squash can be cooked up and added to potatoes to make a fabulous side dish.  We are particularly fond of using pumpkin for the task, but don't hesitate to use something else if you've got it on hand.

Creamed Pumpkin Potatoes 

3 - 4 potatoes, peeled and cubed
3 c fresh pumpkin, cubed, or 2-1/2 c canned

1/4 c (1 oz) sharp cheddar cheese, shredded
1/4 c sour cream
1/2 t salt

Precook the potatoes and pumkin until soft.  Drain well and add the remaining ingredients.  Mash or whip, and serve with additional sour cream if desired.

Mmmm... I never thought of using pumpkin, but we always make our mashed potatoes with 50% white potatoes and 50% sweet potatoes. Yum.
