Jen’s thoughts and Recommendations:
This is one of my boyfriend’s favorite recipes that I make because it fast and tastes great.  I always have potatoes on hand and this recipe is exceptionally cheap because my dad is a potato farmer.  For all those readers who’s dad isn’t a potato farmer, this is still a very cheap side dish or meal as well. I recommend this dish especially to college kids, as it is fast, cheap and tastes great.

Also note that I have tried using the lighter version of Italian dressing, but it just doesn’t taste remotely the same!

Healthier version of this recipe:
Leave out out the Italian dressing and use a cup more of water with seasonings.

Cheap. Fast. Good.
