Okay....you may be thinking PUMPKIN SOUP? I promise this is so very good and in no way tastes like a pumpkin pie. It is not sweet. Rather it is rich, creamy, earthy and so satisfying. It makes a large pot (only way I know how to make soups, stews and chili). My neighbor is always asking me to bring some to her (she is alone) when I make this...and I always do.

THIS MAY BE MY FAVORITE SOUP.

Step-By-Step

1First start by gathering all your ingredients.
2In a Dutch oven or large pot brown the sausage making sure to break it up VERY finely. I use my spurtle to start and then go to a potato masher to get the sausage fine. Drain any grease.
3Add the onion, garlic, Italian seasoning and mushrooms. Sauté until the mushrooms get some color and release some of their liquid.
4Add in the pumpkin. Stir to incorporate. Then add broth. Stir. Simmer over low heat for at least 30 minutes. Stir occasionally. I usually let it cook for 1 hour or so. Just gives it a deeper flavor.
5Remove from heat. Add in the heavy cream, sour cream and water. Stir well.
I like to serve this with pieces of good grilled sourdough that has been drizzled with olive oil, salt and pepper.
EAT! Enjoy!
