Pumpkin Soup

When you’re a pumpkin addict like me, you’ll find that you always have extra pumpkin hanging out in the fridge. Especially after you open one of those huge cans. This is a delicious way to use pumpkin (leftover or not), and its a warm and comforting way to get your fix.  I haven’t had a lot of pumpkin soup in my life, so I’m not sure what other recipes taste like. But I love the extra sweetness that this has, and with the little bit of Parmesan cheese I put on top, it was the ultimate sweet/salty combo.
