Wow, can't agree more with other great reviews. I was excited to make this soup but wasn't expecting it to be this good! I had a very large butternut squash so in addition to the two pears I also added a diced Granny Smith (to the sautee) to offset the sweetness. To keep the texture from ending up like baby food, I only blend two or so batches in my blender on high. The rest I lightly pureed with my stick blender on low. That gave it a smooth creamy base along with some small bits of squash/fruit. I wouldn't rule out blending in the blender completely. The squash has a stringy consistency on its own. I only added a splash of half & half and it was just right for me. My boyfriend and I taste tested two samples with added 1/2 tsp of spice; one with cinnamon and the other with pumpkin pie spice. We preferred the cinnamon. The result - a wonderfully flavorful soup with a touch of sweetness and cream. Not too heavy but it will fill you up!
