A Rachael Ray original recipe that is just over the top! If you love butternut squash soup like I do this is a must try recipe.

10/20/12 ---Made this soup for our Sweetest day dinner and made some parmesean sticks to go with it. I also served curried chicken cups too. It is such a flavorful soup with the squash & orange juice blended together makes it smooth, with a hint of citrus and overall a very light soup. The parmesean strips complimented the soup well.

I did add to Rachel's recipe the chilies and ancho chili pepper.
