Butternut Squash Soup

i am addicted to this soup!! it is so smooth, so good!!
my new favorite for sure!
it is cheap to make, low fat, and good for you!
i think it's about 2 points a cup (weight watchers), if that!


-cook one butternut squash in oven- split in half, take seeds out- on an oiled cookie sheet
375 for an hour (until very soft)

- in large soup pan sautee for 5-10 min:
1 med onion - chopped
3 T butter
4 tsp fresh ginger, peeled and minced (i use my garlic press!)

-add cooked squash as well as 4 cups of chicken broth

-bring to simmer for 20 min (while breaking up the squash with a spoon)

-puree the entire mixture in a blender

-bring back to pot and add 2 Cups of chicken broth
and 1 1/2 tsp salt

-heat it up and serve with crusty bread and butter!
