Not all my soup recipes involve the slow cooker and by using cubed frozen butternut squash, you can whip together this tasty soup that might have others thinking you spent all afternoon cooking. This soup will fit nicely in to a clean eating diet and the cottage cheese adds some unexpected protein to this soup.
