Cream of Butternut Squash Soup

READY IN: 1hr 30mins
Recipe by Vicki in Kansas Bro

This is from Heartland Soups cookbook. This is a really good soup. I don't know the exact prep or cook time except for the 1 hour to bake the squash. Hope you enjoy as much as we do!

I thought this soup was alright. I expected it to be creamier because of the name, and I didn't like the thyme flavoring, so I ended up doctoring it up with other seasonings to make it taste okay. Maybe it's just a matter of preference. I did put sausage slices into the soup while it was cooking, which I thought added a lot to the flavor and heartiness.
