Butternut Squash Lasagna Soup

A quick and easy soup recipe that combines the rich fall flavors of Butternut Squash Lasagna with the ease of a one-pot meal.

If there’s one downside to soup season (which thank the good lord in heaven is finally here), it’s that sometimes soup just isn’t enough for “a meal.”

That is of course unless you add pasta. When you add pasta, everything becomes a meal right?

Think about it…

…Bolognese is just a big bowl of meat sauce before you add pasta…

…Mac-and-Cheese is just — well, cheese — before you add pasta…

…and let’s not even think about the mess Manicotti would be without pasta… 

Inspired by one of my all time favorites recipes — Butternut Squash Lasagna — this Butternut Squash Lasagna Soup takes a cue from the ever popular idea of “Lasagna Soup.” But by using the earthy flavors of butternut squash and rosemary and stirring in just a bit of cream and yogurt, you get a much fresher tasting, but equally as hearty soup without all the additional sodium and fat of the traditional version.   

Now before you turn away thinking “but butternut squash is so hard to work with,” let me let you in on a little secret. With a couple of pricks of the knife and a whirl in your microwave, peeling and cubing butternut squash is a breeze. 

…and once you’ve made easy work of the squash, it’s a simple matter of simmering and summoning your pasta to make the meal.
