Can I just tell you that while I was making this I thought it was going to turn out absolutely disgusting. I was SO pleasantly surprised! I doubled it and made 2 extra freezer meals of it. AND we have eaten them all and I am making more to freeze and eat this week. We LOVE it!
My kids snarf it too. That is a big deal! It is an awesome substitute for tomato soup on those cold days. It has that creaminess and that hearty goodness that just fills you up with warm fuzzy's!
2 lbs butternut squash, peeled, seeded and cubed (just use a peeler and go at it like a potato)
4 cloves garlic, peeled and quartered
3 1/2 cups chicken broth (low sodium of course)
2 slices stale wheat bread, cut in to pieces
1/4 tsp pepper
1 tsp dried basil
