Notes

If refrigerated chopped butternut squash is not available, use 1 12-ounce package frozen chopped butternut squash. Another small pasta (macaroni, orzo or small shells) may be used in place of ditalini.

Ingredients

  • Nonstick cooking spray, such as PAM
  • 2 8-ounce cans tomato sauce with basil, garlic and oregano, such as Hunt's
  • 2 Cups water
  • 1 12-ounce package refrigerated butternut squash pieces
  • ½ Teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1 Pound bulk Italian pork sausage
  • ½ Cup uncooked ditalini pasta
  • 1 6-ounce package baby spinach leaves

Directions

Spray the inside of 4-quart slow cooker with the cooking spray. Add the tomato sauce, water, squash and garlic powder to the slow cooker; stir to combine. Pinch the sausage into bite-size pieces and place in the slow cooker. Cover; cook on low for 7½ hours or on high for 3½ hours.

Stir in the pasta and spinach; cover and cook on high 30 minutes more or until the pasta is tender.

Butternut Squash Soup Shopping Tip

Look for vegetables that are firm and bright in color – avoid those that are wilted or have wrinkled skins, which are signs of age and damage.

Butternut Squash Soup Cooking Tip

Different vegetables have different cooking times – cook different types separately and then combine.
