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!

Tasty, elegant, and easy! Lots of fiber in this recipe too. Hubby and I did not think it had too much pepper-in fact, we added pepper to it b/c we love pepper. The fresh sage is an absolute must-adds taste plus a bit of crunch. I sort of wonder if the sugar is really necessary? Thanks Maryland Jim for sharing. Congratulations on your win for Football Pool Week #10!

This was a really good soup and very easy to make! The amount of cayenne was a bit overpowering for me so the next time I will reduce the amount of cayenne. The sage butter added a really nice touch to this light tasty soup. Congrats on your win and thanks for the recipe!I will make this again :)
