Butternut Squash Soup with Crispy Prosciutto

Rated 5 out of 5

In this recipe, caramelized pears add a sweet note to classic butternut squash soup. Thin slices of prosciutto—an air-dried, salt-cured ham from Italy—are baked until crispy and used as a savory garnish. They provide a pleasing textural contrast to the velvety soup, while lending just the right amount of saltiness and savor.
