Creamy, cheesy Butternut Squash Soup filled with mini ravioli and smoked sausage.  It will become a new family favorite!


  • 2 teaspoons olive oil
  • 1 cup chopped onion
  • 3 cloves garlic
  • 1 teaspoon dried rosemary, crushed in palm
  • 1 teaspoon dried thyme
  • ½ teaspoon dried sage
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • ½ teaspoon pepper
  • 24 oz package cubed butternut squash (or peel and cube a fresh one, you’ll need about 5 cups cubed)
  • 4 cups chicken broth
  • 4 oz whipped cream cheese
  • ⅓ cup freshly grated parmesan cheese
  • 16 oz cheese stuffed mini ravioli

Optional: 12 oz fully cooked sausage like Aidells (pick your favorite flavor!)


  1. Select sauté on the pressure cooker and add oil.  When hot, add onions and garlic and sauté until soft, about 4 minutes.  
  2. Add rosemary, thyme, sage, salt, pepper, butternut squash and chicken broth; stir.  
  3. Secure the lid and turn pressure release knob to a sealed position.  Cook at high pressure for 15 minutes.
  4. If using sausage, heat through per package directions.  Slice into bite size pieces. Cover with foil to keep warm.
  5. When pressure cooking is complete, use a quick release.  
  6. Add cream cheese and parmesan.  Blend with an immersion blender right in the pot until very smooth or carefully pour into a blender and purée, until smooth.  
  7. Press sauté or brown to bring soup to a boil.  Add pasta and cook per package instructions. Typically once the pasta floats to the top, it’s done.
  8. Stir in sausage.
  9. Season to taste.  Serve hot.


  • Precut butternut squash is easy to find in most produce sections.  If you don’t see it there, look in the freezer aisle.
  • Use fully cooked sausage.  I like the smoked sausage at Trader Joe’s or the Aidells brand.
  • Look for MINI ravioli.  The soup is a little tricky to eat if the ravioli are large.
