  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 1 medium onion, chopped medium
  • 1 garlic clove, minced
  • 1 red bell pepper, chopped medium fine
  • 1 acorn squash, peeled, seeded, and cut into 1/2-inch cubes

  • 1 cup frozen corn
  • 1 cup frozen peas
  • 3/4 cup heavy cream
  • 1-1/4 teaspoons chopped fresh thyme

Heat oil in a sauté pan over a moderate flame. Add onion and garlic and cook, stirring frequently, until they begin to turn brown, about 5 minutes. Add pepper and cook 3 to 5 minutes. Add squash and chicken broth; bring to a boil, then lower heat and simmer until squash is almost tender, but not soft, about 10 minutes. Add frozen corn and peas, then add cream and thyme. Simmer 5 minutes, add salt and pepper to taste, and serve.
