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?

This recipe comes together quickly and produces a wonderful, rich and silky soup that is full of flavor. To blend the soup, you can either use an immersion blender right in the soup pot or transfer it to your blender (love my Ninja) and puree until smooth.
