Roasted Buttercup Squash Soup

Everyone makes squash soup with butternut. I know. But I like to swim against the current sometimes, and anyway… I just plain like buttercup squash better. This recipe is adapted from a friend’s recipe, in that she gave me the inspiration and the basic idea, but then I pretty much went off-roading.
