    1 tsp extra virgin olive oil
    1 small yellow onion, chopped
    2 large carrots, peeled and cut into1/2 inch slices
    8 oz white mushrooms, cut into quarters
    3 cups reduced sodium, low-fat chicken broth
    1 lb. butternut or spaghetti squash, skin and seeds removed. Cut flesh into 1/2 inch pieces.
    1 1b. redskin potatoes, cut into cubes
    2 tsp dried sage (I also added fresh b/c I had it on hand)
    6oz. low-fat, low sodium nitrate free ham, cut into 1/2 inch
    cubes. (I used Jennie-O turkey ham)
    1/4 skim milk (I used almond milk)
    2 oz. light cream cheese


1. Heat oil in a large stockpot on medium heat for 1 minute. Add onion, carrots, and mushrooms. Cook for 5 minutes, stirring occasionally.

2. Stir in broth, squash, potatoes, and sage. Bring soup to a boil on high heat, then reduce heat to low, cover and simmer for 10 minutes. Stir in ham and heat through.

3. (During last few minutes of cooking soup) In a small pot on low heat, add milk and cream cheese. Cook, whisking constantly, for 1 minute or until mixture is smooth. Ladle 1 cup soup mixture into milk mixture and whisk. Pour milk mixture back into stockpot and stir to combine. Serve immediately.

Note: Spaghetti Squash - When spaghetti squash is cooked, its fibers naturally separate and look like short strands of golden spaghetti, or shredded cheese.
