Easy Yummy Butternut Squash Soup

6 tablespoons chopped onion
4 tablespoons butter
6 cups peeled and cubed butternut squash
Enough Chicken Stock to cover Squash
1/2 teaspoon dried marjoram
1/4 teaspoon ground black pepper
1/8 teaspoon ground cayenne pepper
2 (8 ounce) packages cream cheese *

In a large Soup Pot, saute onions in butter until tender. Add squash, stock, marjoram, black pepper and cayenne pepper. Bring to boil; cook 20 minutes, or until squash is tender.

Add cream cheese and puree until smooth. Heat through. Do not allow to boil.

* I felt it was too cheesy and would try just one brick of cream cheese next time.

I love this recipe, but actually use between 1/3 and 1/2 of a block of cream cheese.
