Spicy Cream of Pumpkin Soup
[Editor's Note: Pumpkin soup is a terrific way to incorporate seasonal flavors into your Thanksgiving dinner if you don't want to make a pumpkin pie. It's also a great main course or appetizer for any late Fall gathering. If you want to make it in vegetarian fashion, simply use vegetable broth in place of the chicken broth, and omit the crispy prosciutto. --Genie]
