Super Squash

January 15, 2012

Not only is butternut squash delicious, it’s loaded with health benefits.  This recipe is my favorite winter soup at the moment, I can’t get enough!  Not only is it easy and tasty but it’s a great one to make on Sunday and take with lunch for the week…the flavors only get better as they meld in the fridge.
