Butternut Squash Soup

October once again has arrived and along with it are some delicious butternut squash! I couldn’t help but grab one yesterday at the grocery store with plans to make some yummy soup. I love this soup because there are so many little adjustments you can make to it to have a very different tasting soup. Today I made it with a bit of a “kick” from cayenne pepper. If you don’t like cayenne pepper you can absolutely leave it out. From start to finish this soup takes 40 minutes to prepare and cook. One of my absolute favorites for the beautiful fall season.

I hope you enjoy it!
