once all my ingredients were ready, i sweated down half and onion and 1 medium carrot in a pressure cooker (i love how everything is faster with them). Then added the squash, chestnuts, nutmeg, a little cinnamon, you could add heavy cream to make it creamy but i wanted mine without it. You also need chicken stock, at least 3 cups depending on how thick you want it.chilipowder, salt and pepper, lay it skin up on a pan with a little bit of water, and roasted it in the oven at 350 for about half an hour till soft.

I put some sourcream and chives on mine, you can use creme fraiche, yogurt or whatever u like on top.

it was super easy to make even though it took some initial prep time. AND the best part about it was there was so much left over that i froze the rest in 2 batches, so its at hand any time i need it this winter!
