I came up with this to finally use the last squash from my mom's garden. We do not use salt in our household, so you may want to add to taste. I use homemade broth so I can control the sodium, and I roasted the squash a couple days before, so it was really quick to put together. You can easily make this vegan by omitting the canadian bacon and substitute vegetable broth.
