Gotta eat it to believe it

It may sound like a weird combo to some of you, but this pumpkin and sausage soup is delicious. It is spiced to perfection. I love that it's not your average soup, and it's easy to make. Let curiosity drive you to try it. This dish never fails to impress.

THE RECIPE:

1 pound ground pork sausage
1/2 c. chopped onion
8-ounce package fresh sliced mushrooms
1 clove garlic, minced
15-ounce can pumpkin puree
4 c. chicken broth
1 tsp. curry
Salt and pepper to taste
1/2 c. heavy cream

In a large pot, brown sausage with onion, garlic and mushrooms. Drain fat. Add pumpkin and broth, then curry and salt and pepper. Cover and simmer 20-30 minutes. Add cream and simmer 10 minutes more. Makes 8 cups.

I remembered how good this soup was and made it last night to take to a dinner party/book review where we all dressed up as characters from a Agatha Christy book. The soup got great reviews and brought back fun memories for me of our Halloween party when you had made it!
