It's finally Fall weather, and nothing says Fall like a hot bowl of soup. Especially Butternut Squash soup. I've tried a few recipes over the year but I think this is my favorite. It has so much flavor and just the right amount of spice but not enough to make me sweat! I also love soups that have toppings and this one has a few. So throw on a sweater and some fuzzy socks and whip up a quick batch to enjoy!
