New England 'halloween' Witches Stew
1/2 quart whole milk
1 handful of coarsely torn up basil
4 small yukon gold potatoes (preferably from Maine)
Cut the acorn and butternut squash in half lengthwise, scoop out seeds, and drizzle with EVOO. Stab the potatoes with a fork. Wrap the garlic in tinfoil and drizzle some EVOO inside. Roast your squash, potatoes, and garlic in the oven at 375 degrees for 40 minutes. Set aside to cool. Once it cools cut up the potatoes and squash into medium sized squares.
In a large stockpot under medium high heat, sauté onions, mushrooms, chicken sausage, basil, and merkén in EVOO for 10 minutes.
A perfect hearty meal for a cozy Friday night watching the leaves fall...
