Recipe by Maryland Jim

I've made this soup for company and it is always a hit.

What a perfect soup for the rainy days we've been having! My sage is still flourishing, luckily, because that really makes the soup. I wouldn't have thought of sage with winter squash (probably because I grew up with family who sugared any form of it to death!) I'll probably skip the cayenne, like another reviewer--it didn't add much for me, but of course my spice-o-phobe daughter picked right up on it. I will definitely be making this again! Thanks for sharing!
