And garlic and saute 1 minute.

Add squash and chicken broth.

Bring to a boil, reduce heat and simmer for 20 minutes or until carrots are tender.

Process mixture, in batches, in a blender or food processor until smooth.

(Hot mixtures will erupt out of blender if too full- believe me I know).

Top soup with crumbled bacon and garnish with sour cream and red pepper.
