  1. Cut squash into manageable pieces, remove the seeds and peel.
  2. Place into a large saucepan and add stock& garlic powder.
  3. If stock does not cover squash, add some water until squash is just covered.
  4. Boil until squash is soft& yields easily to being poked with a fork (do not cover).
  5. Amount of stock should reduce slightly.
  6. Remove from heat.
  7. Using a hand-held blender, puree squash& stock together.
  8. Place back on low heat& add cream cheese and black pepper.
