Slow Cooker Butternut Squash Soup with Sausage
January 07, 2017

I make this on a semi-regular basis. My husband limits his carbs and loves squash, so I leave the pasta out and typically use a lot more squash than it calls for (I buy a whole one and put it all in). The squash cooks to mush and acts as the base of the soup, so it turns out more like a stew than a soup, but we love it. It makes great leftovers and with the exception of cutting up the squash, it's super-easy to make! Because of not adding the pasta, I reduce the time on the final step where that and the spinach are added; I stir in the spinach, then leave the pot on just long enough for the spinach to wilt.
