Cooking Notes

* For testing purposes, I used Farmer’s Market ® Organic Butternut Squash; If you cannot find canned butternut squash puree, pure packed pumpkin can be substituted. Add additional water until desired consistency is achieved, as pumpkin is thicker than butternut squash. Do not use pears packed in syrup or soup will be overly sweet.

1. Combine all the ingredients in a medium saucepan over medium heat. Using an immersion blender, blend until smooth.
