This was dreamt up while my sister and I were looking for a use for one large can of pumpkin pie filling. Don't be put off by the thoughts of pumpkin pie filling, it makes the recipe soooo easy, no spices to add. It is pretty rich, so enjoy in small servings. Hint-top your bowl of soup with a dollup of sour cream and a sprinkling of French Fried Onions.

- 2 tablespoons olive oil
- 3 tablespoons frangelico liquor

- 1⁄2 cup half-and-half
- 1 teaspoon black pepper
- 1 teaspoon crushed red pepper flakes
- 1 (2 7/8 ounce) can Durkee onions, crushed
