    tsp crushed garlic (optional)

Directions

Start by dicing up your squash, then pour the olive oil into a large pot. If you like a hint of garlic flavor, add 1/2 tsp crushed garlic to mixture. Simmer or ‘sweat’ your squash on medium low heat for 5 minutes. Add chicken broth and corn, bring mixture to a boil. Reduce heat to low and simmer for 10 minutes. Add basil, thyme, salt tomato sauce, and white beans, then cook on medium low heat for another 15 minutes. Serves 6. Serve it hot! Serve with crusty bread and parmesan.
