Butternut squash adds color and nutrients to chicken noodle soup.

Ingredients

1
tablespoon olive or vegetable oil
2
medium stalks celery, coarsely chopped (1 cup)
1
medium onion, coarsely chopped (1/2 cup)
1
teaspoon dried sage leaves
6
cups Progresso™ chicken broth (from two 32-oz cartons)
2 1/2
cups chopped deli rotisserie chicken (from 2- to 2 1/2-lb chicken)
1 1/2
cups uncooked tricolor rotini pasta (about 5 oz)
1 1/2
cups 3/4-inch cubes peeled butternut squash
1/4
teaspoon salt
1/8
teaspoon pepper

Directions

  • 1 In 4 1/2- to 5-quart Dutch oven, heat oil over medium-high heat. Cook celery, onion and sage in oil 5 to 6 minutes, stirring frequently, until onion is softened.
  • 2 Stir in remaining ingredients. Heat to boiling; reduce heat to medium. Cover; cook 12 to 15 minutes, stirring occasionally, until pasta and squash are tender.
Tips  

Add an exotic Indian flavor by substituting 1 teaspoon of curry powder for the sage.

This recipe calls for the peanut-shaped butternut squash, but buttercup or acorn squash could be used instead.
