No Name Stew?

What to call this? Certainly not a soup, possibly a stew? It's very thick and satisfying. Chock full of delicious healthy stuff! This is another effort to cook from my pantry. The only thing I bought was the ground turkey!

1 large onion diced
1 medium butternut squash diced
1-2 cloves garlic - minced
2 red potatoes - diced
canola or olive oil
1 t Italian seasoning
1 t Italian Sausage seasoning

1/2 lb ground turkey

1 can chicken stock (or 2 if not using beer or wine)
12 oz beer or wine
1 can cannellini beans

spinach 3-4 ripped up handsful

pasta - 2-3 servings (I used angel hair and broke it into about 1.5" pieces.)

Brown onion over fairly high heat. Add in butternut squash and brown that as well. Then add in potato and brown that. Add in ground turkey and brown that!

Add in liquids and beans and simmer for 1/2 hour or so.

Add in the spinach and pasta and cook until the pasta is al dente. Taste and add salt if necessary. Top with parmesan cheese and get all warmed up through your whole body!
