Butternut Squash Soup

I swear, I make meals. AND on a regular basis too! It's just treats are so much more fun to write about.=) But this is also fun. I got this recipe out of some magazine a long time ago and finally decided to make it last year. I have changed it to what we like. Honestly, my kids don't LOVE it, but my husband and I sure do! Creamy and Fally and perfect with some crusty bread.


1 medium onion, chopped (we like red onion)

1 carrot-peeled cut ½ inch

3 cloves, garlic, minced

7 c. squash, ¾ inch

6 c. chicken broth

1 T. sage (this is the secret ingredient!)

Cook onion and carrots in oil for 5 min until soft. Add garlic. Add squash and broth to boil. Add sage and boil 20 minutes. Blend in a food processor-you might need to do it in shifts. Also, add some parmesan cheese. This makes alot of soup! Like ALOT! About 7-8 cups.

My squash soup recipe has a different "secret " ingredient & that is canned pumpkin. Yum! Pie mix type means you don't necessarily need to use pumpkin pie spices. Regular pumpkin needs the pie spice. Add some heavy cream or 1/2 & 1/2 & double yum. Warms the soul on rainy days!
