Acorn Squash Soup

READY IN: 45mins
Recipe by Michelle S.

This looks delicious. It was given me by a coworker who says her Mother makes it every Thanksgiving. Prep time does not include the time to cook and mash the acorn squash.

Good flavor but way too thick. It ended up being almost like a paste. Next time, I may try preparing with skim milk instead of evaporated milk. Maybe more chicken broth?
