Roasted Butternut Squash & Apple Soup

It’s the season for butternut squash. 🙂

Today I wanted to make a different kind of butternut squash. Roasting this soup brings out a nice depth of flavor from the butternut squash, apples, and garlic. Enjoy this with family and friends.
This is a very easy recipe to make and a healthy one!
