Pinterest, but I altered it a bit to incorporate more of my favorite flavors - sage, red pepper flakes, half & half, hazelnuts & sausage!
I like a thicker soup so I only added a bit of half & half. But I went a little "nuts" with the sage, hazelnuts, apple sausage from Robert's Specialty Meats. These flavors against the sweet of the apples & squash complimented the soup nicely. I added very few red pepper flakes right at the end, but I think I might add a few more next time.
This is definitely being added to my go to list of recipes!
