Pumpkin and Bean Soup

This is one of those recipes that you can have in your back pocket for nights when you only have 20 minutes or so to get dinner on the table. I didn’t think it would turn out well, but it actually tasted ok. Everyone liked it and Toby went back for seconds. It’s not the best pumpkin soup I’ve ever had, but it was good enough.
