15 Minute Butternut Squash Soup

Can I share with you one thing that I always look forward to in the fall?   Butternut Squash Soup.  It’s creamy, comforting, and tastes terrific.   Back during those first few years that I hosted Thanksgiving,  I worked away the night before Thanksgiving, preparing my butternut squash soup.

Can I share with you the hardest part about making Butternut Squash Soup?   It’s spending 20 minutes peeling, cutting and scooping out the seeds from the darn butternut squash.  It takes FOREVER!

I have come up with an easy way to make easy and delicious butternut squash soup.   See, as a busy mom of now THREE young boys, I often turn to frozen vegetables to serve them homemade, healthy meals in a jiffy.  I have noticed lately that Walmart is expanding its frozen vegetable selection.   I have been buying their FROZEN BUTTERNUT SQUASH!  I used three bags of Great Value Butternut Squash in this soup.

Here’s what you need for super quick butternut squash soup
