Ingredients

    2 tablespoons butter or extra-virgin olive oil

    1 onion, chopped

    3 cloves garlic, minced

    1 (28-ounce) can whole tomatoes, with liquid

    1/4-1/2 cup roasted garlic tomato paste

    2 cups vegetable or organic chicken stock

    2-2 1/2 cups butternut squash, peeled and diced

    Salt and ground pepper to taste

    2 tablespoons fresh basil, chopped

    1/2 teaspoon dried thyme

    1 to 1 1/4 cups nonfat half-and-half or nonfat yogurt

    Several dashes of Tabasco or other hot pepper sauce

Directions

In a large saucepan, saute onions and garlic in butter or oil over medium-low heat until soft and golden. Add tomatoes, tomato paste, chicken stock, butternut squash, salt, pepper, basil and thyme. Bring to a boil, then reduce heat. Partially cover and simmer for about 30-35 minutes, or until squash is fork-tender. Puree the soup in a blender, then pour back into the saucepan. Stir in nonfat half and half or yogurt, splash in the hot pepper sauce, and taste for seasoning. Heat the soup just to a boil, then ladle into bowls. Garnish with sliced basil leaves or minced parsley.
