Warming Butternut Squash & Turkey Stew

We've been eating quite a lot of bolognaise and chilli recently, mainly because I've been spending a lot of time making marshmallows, and it's easy to grab a pack of turkey mince and rustle something up quickly for dinner.

I decided to make something a little different with the latest pack of turkey mince, which required only very little prep and cooking, before popping in the oven to finish off.
