Recipe by Chef John
"This simple squash and sausage stew represents my idea of the perfect summer supper. It's very comforting, relatively fast, wonderfully flavorful, and helps solve a problem that's existed since neighbors started planting gardens: what to do with all that squash! Serve it with a big slice of crusty bread for dipping into the broth."

Delicious! Amazing flavor for only needing 30 minutes to cook. Bought the veggies at Pike Place Market and made this as a special treat for my girlfriend--it was her first day at a new job. Was surprised the summer squash didn't disintegrate after 30 minutes of simmering but it was a-ok...nice and chunky and hearty. While the stew was simmering we had a little caprese-style salad--sliced heirloom tomatoes with fresh basil, balsamic vinegar, and oil on top. Altogether it was an easy dinner that won me major points!
I made this last night with leftover squash from my CSA box. It was so good! I didn't have crushed tomatoes so I used stewed. I also used a red pepper in place of Jalapeno because it's what I had on hand. Lastly, I added in some purple carrots. Such a great and easy soup!
AWESOME! Best stew I have ever tasted! Used turkey sausage to cut down on fat. Was fabulous!
This is amazing. Even my 2 year old said it was "lishus" (delicious)! There's so much flavor and its super hearty. I followed the recipe exactly as it states only I didn't have a summer squash so I used a winter squash with my zucchini. I would definitely recommend putting the potatoes in it, it really added a lot to the texture. If you want more of a soup I would probably leave them out. This is going to be made repeatedly in this house FOR SURE!
I doubled this for the freezer and I also have tried it with sausage crumbles. So good!
Delicious just as written.
I added a can of Great Northern Beans because beans just seem to beg to be added.
This was FANTASTIC! I big hit with me and my coworkers! What a great and DIFFERENT way to use Summer Squash. Thanks so much!
This is so good! I followed everything exactly, except added in some chopped carrots that I had sitting in the fridge. I love the hearty, homey stew flavors this brought my family. My dad hates most vegetables, but he ate most of the pot! Thank you!
