  nonstick vegetable oil spray
1 medium  onion, chopped (about 1 cup)
1 Tbsp  freshly grated ginger, optional
3 Tbsp  unsalted butter
3 cup  chicken broth
1 - 2 cup  water, as needed
  salt and pepper to taste
  sour cream for garnish
 
cut squash in half lengthwise, and scoop out the seeds. arrange the halves 
cut side down in roasting pan that has been sprayed with nonstick 
vegetable oil spray. bake squash in the oven for 40-45 minutes or until 
very tender. set aside to cool. when the squash is completely cool, scoop 
the flesh from the skin. while the squash is baking, cook the onion and 
the ginger in the butter in a saucepan, over moderately low heat, for 5 
minutes or until the onion is softened, add the broth and simmer the 
mixture for 10 minutes, covered. add the squash pulp to the sauce pan. 
transfer the mixture to a blender or food processor, in batches, and puree 
until smooth. add enough water to achieve the desired consistency, and 
salt and pepper to taste. return the soup to the sauce pan and cook over 
moderate heat until it is hot. garnish each portion with the heaping 
teaspoon of low-fat sour cream.
