This soup is freaking AWESOME
"My husband and I were surprised at how tasty this soup was. It was not very labor intensive and most of the ingredients were already in the house. A plus for two people who work full-time."
(1) Roast the squash: cut squash in half (lengthwise) and remove seeds. Rub cut side with olive oil, place cut side on tinfoil on baking sheet. Roast at 425 degrees for 30 min or until fork-tender. Let cool.
