Roasted Butternut Squash and Red Pepper Soup

Roasted Butternut Squash and Red Pepper Soup

The fantastic squash display in my local market had me thinking about taking advantage of the abundance of this vegetable during the Fall. And of course there is nothing as comforting as a big bowl of butternut squash soup. I added some roasted red peppers and cream to give it a little flair. Delicious!
