Butternut Squash is perhaps best known as the backbone for a most satisfying bowl of soup. This version comes to us from allrecipes.com.Pressed for time? Notice that this one comes together in just two steps!

6 tablespoons chopped onion
4 tablespoons margarine or butter
6 cups peeled and cubed butternut squash
3 cups water
4 cubes chicken or vegetable bouillon
1/2 teaspoon dried marjoram
1/4 teaspoon ground black pepper
1/8 teaspoon ground cayenne pepper
2 (8 ounce) packages cream cheese

In a large saucepan, saute onions in margarine until tender. Add squash, water, bouillon, marjoram, black pepper and cayenne pepper. Bring to boil; cook 20 minutes, or until squash is tender.
Puree squash and cream cheese in a blender or food processor in batches until smooth. Return to saucepan, and heat through. Do not allow to boil.
