Simply Sunday~Pumpkin Squash Soup

Good morning, well good Monday- here is my Simply Sunday post !

The other day at school the mothers brought in some treats for the teachers. One mom made this delicious Pumpkin Soup. She gave me the recipe, so I thought I would post it here. I made it Saturday night along with a Caesar Salad and some Garlic Parmesan rolls for some out of town guests. 
I was too tired to post it on Sunday, so here you go! 

12 ounces cut up butternut squash
large can pumpkin (not pumpkin pie)
6 cups chicken broth
1 lb andoiulle sausage
1/2 diced onion
olive oil to sauté
1 t salt
1 1/2 t curry powder
1/2 t salt
1/2 t white pepper- if using black use 1 t
top with heavy whipping cream and sour cream- to be added later~

Directions: My version:
Peel skin from sausage and saute' with onion in a small bit of olive oil 

Remove from pan and set aside. Next saute' the cut up squash in the same pan until tender-I added a touch of chicken broth to help it along

Add 2 cups of chicken broth and let it simmer for a bit 

Next take this mixure and puree' in a blender.  

Place the mixture in a soup pot. Add the pumpkin, 4 more cups of chicken broth and the spices and stir. Add the sausage mixture. I brought it to a boil and then let it simmer for at least 25 minutes.

Our company was not coming for hours later, so I kept it in a crockpot on low all day.

I turned off the crock pot about an hour before serving. Then, I added about 1/2 cup of heavy whipping cream to the crockpot- once the soup cooled down a bit- so it does not curdle.  

Before serving, add a dollap of sour cream to your taste. 

I served with a Caesar Salad and Garlic Parmesan Rolls.
Enjoy and thank you Christina for the recipe!
