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!
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 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!
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!
It was nice having so many appetizing vegetables in one serving. I highly recommend it to those who, like myself, are not fond of vegetables but are trying experiment with them more.
I have never written a review for a recipe. I have had many good ones from All Recipes. This one was delicious! Coupled with a fresh loaf of bread from my sister. She likes to bake!
We left out the potatoes and parsley because we didn't have any. Also no cayenne because I used 3 Fresno chilies which are hotter than jalapeños. My fiancée forgot the cheese which I will definitely use next time. I used it with fresh sourdough rolls, but I think crusty day olds would be even better. Great summer leftovers soup. I bet this freezes well too.
