Directions

In large saucepan, combine squash and stock or broth; bring to boil over high heat. Reduce heat to medium, cover pan and simmer squash for 20 minutes or until very tender.

Uncover and let cool. Puree in blender or food processor, in batches if necessary.

Return puree to saucepan and place over medium-low heat. Stir in sour cream, cheese, butter and red pepper. Add salt and white pepper to taste. If squash lacks sweetness, add optional sugar.

Stir soup just until heated through (do not allow to boil). Serve sprinkled with chives.
