butternut squash and spicy sausage soup

i've been a huge fan of this soup for years now, so it's about time i post a recipe of sorts. this soups tastes like fall. it's based on this recipe.

gather the supplies. butternut squash, chicken broth, potatoes, corn, sausage, cream, onion, olive oil, salt & pepper.

cut squash, scoop out seeds and put it in a pan w/ some water. bake it until mushy.

scoop out the goodness

chop your onion and sausage into bite-size pieces

saute them in a little bit of olive oil

toss in the corn and potatoes and cook a bit more

puree the squishy squash and the chicken broth

stir it in with your sausage/onion/potato/corn mixture. season with salt and pepper - lots of pepper. let it cook for a little bit (especially if you use fresh potatoes). i'm too impatient to let it cook very long.

 add about 1/2 c. of heavy whipping cream and enjoy!
