Butternut squash soup

The Fall season calls for some squash or pumpkin related recipe. This is a very simple butternut squash soup recipe from Once Upon a Chef.  The easiest way to cut up a butternut squash is to start by cutting the round bottom part from the longer narrower stem part.  Then, stand the longer stem part on the cut-end and cut off the skin with thin slices around the sides.  This recipe made a hearty delicious soup and paired great with bread. In this instance, I served it with some pastizzi, a Maltese flakey pastry filled with ricotta cheese or mushy peas.
