Ingredients

    One 2lb butternut squash (about 6 cups after cooking)
    3/4 cup onions, diced
    3 cloves garlic, minced
    4 tbsp butter
    1/2 tsp dried marjoram

    3 cups chicken broth
    1 8oz package of Neufchatel cheese (cream cheese works just as well)

Slice butternut squash lengthwise and place face side down onto a baking sheet. Bake for 40 min, until softened but not mushy.

In a small pot, saute the garlic and onion in the butter until the onions are clear. Add the marjoram, black pepper, cayenne pepper, and chicken broth. Bring to a boil.

Add cooked butternut squash, soup mixture, and cubed cheese to a blender and blend until smooth. Blend in batches if necessary. Transfer soup to the pot and heat thoroughly - DO NOT BRING TO A BOIL.
