    Mirj's Note:

      I am so glad I prepared this recipe! This is soul soothing, appealing aromatic, and delightfully easy to make stew. It really is no harder them making chicken soup, and so much better! The parsnips add such a smooth taste to this stew, as well as the squash. I didn't have access to pumpkin squash so used butternut squash instead. I also added a couple stalks of asparagus, because we had fresh. I wish I could give it more stars. The only thing I forgot was the peas, which I added after I took the picture. Oh well. Thanks, Mirj, this was great!
