horizontally to make the diced cut.*

5. Add the squash, salt and pepper and half of the water. Stir, then top the dish.
6. Chop sage and bacon and add it to the skillet. Stir the dish and add in remaining water if needed. (If there is no liquid in the pan.) Lower heat and let cook for about 5 minutes.
