Fall is a time when we welcome cooler weather and begin turning from traditional lighter summer meals back to our favorite comfort foods.
Recently, I came home from the local farmers market with a bounty of Fall vegetables. My prize pick was a beautiful, butternut squash. I wanted to make something that would give me all the flavors of Fall in one healthful yet hearty meal.
What would be better suited than this rich and creamy soup?
Paired with a loaf of crusty bread and a stunning Apple, Pecan and Blue Cheese Salad this simple soup is transformed into a luxurious meal.
This flavorful soup contains the flavors of fall that I absolutely crave.
