  • 1 teaspoon basil
  • 1 teaspoon sea salt
  • 1/4 cup to 1/2 cup coconut milk, optional

Preheat oven to 350. Cut squash in half and remove seeds. Lay squash cut-side down in baking pan with about 1 inch of water. Bake for about one hour or until soft and cooked through. Allow to cool and scoop out flesh. Meanwhile, cook sausage, garlic and onion in large pot until sausage is cooked through. Drain fat. Stir in chicken stock and seasonings. Add squash and stir. Heat to boiling. Reduce heat and simmer 20 minutes. Remove from heat and stir in coconut milk.

    I'm a sucker for a good soup and one with sausage is even more tempting. I happen to even have some roasted butternut squash in my fridge as I write this. This might just be the perfect way get it in our bellies.
