There are so many great things about this butternut squash soup. First of all, it's made in the slow cooker, which means no standing over the stove or in front of the oven roasting squash. Secondly, it's incredibly affordable and uses mostly ingredients you have on hand. You can make a huge batch for under $10. Finally it not only works great as a soup, it also makes a great sauce on pasta, spaghetti squash, or quinoa. Make up a big batch and freeze what's leftover.
