Butternut Squash, Sausage, Kale Soup

When the temperatures drop, a bowl of this soup will immediately warm you up.

Thankfully the bunnies were willing to share some of their kale with us, because the leafy green is so perfect complimented with all the flavors.

Are you ready to grab a stock pot and start cooking?

Jackson from Guard My Heart (Crystal Shores Book Two) is at it again and this time Anika's not sick. He just wanted to make a special recipe to warm her up from the inside out. 

 He has this thing about layering flavors to make the dish pop. That's why he first browned the sausage and then left the bits in the pan for the next steps. 

Anika didn't want to do it but she had to...she grabbed a giant second bowl and ate every last bite. I guess you could say the recipe was a winner.

A few days before I decide to make this recipe, I was testing out a butternut squash au gratin recipe. I had about three cups of raw squash that I didn't use which is why I ended up making this dish.

The soup incorporated dried sage and dried serrano peppers that had come from my garden. Which made me think, this recipe is not just perfect for the cooler temps, it would be perfect for a gardener, too, because if you grow squash and kale, you would love this recipe.

The soup is really easy to make. If you have a busy night, it will take you about 35-45 minutes to cook it from start to finish. So good!
