Creamy, Buttery Squash Soup Puts a Smile On Your Face :)

This is the perfect soup to prepare for a simple dinner. You don’t need to do a lot for this. If you’re too tired, all you need to have is the presence of mind so you will not use another ingredient by mistake, but that’s all!

Mom always scolds me over the phone whenever I go to bed without eating anything. But it’s bad to eat something heavy before going to bed because it messes with your sleeping pattern, which is why when I find myself overly tired to do anything lol!




1 teaspoon Bertolli olive oil

1 clove garlic, minced

1⁄2 cup chopped onion

1⁄2 teaspoon Morton salt

1⁄8 teaspoon McCormick ground black pepper

1 teaspoon fresh sage, chopped


3 cups College Inn fat-free chicken broth

1 1⁄2 lbs butternut squash (peeled, seeded, cubed)

Sargento parmesan cheese (optional, for garnish)



Add olive oil, garlic and onion to large stockpot over medium heat.

Saute for about 3-4 minutes, then add sage, salt, pepper, broth and squash.

Bring the mixture to a boil.

Cover, reduce heat to medium and simmer for 20 minutes.

Use stick blender to lightly puree, leaving some chunks, or puree half of the soup in a food processor or blender and return to pot.

Garnish with Parmesan cheese and more fresh sage (if desired).



Quick Tip: Add some hearty whole grain bread and a tossed salad to make a very satisfying meal.
