This pumpkin sausage soup recipe has been floating around the low-carb community for years and years, I believe it was originally posted on the, now defunct, low carb forum Low-Carb Friends by a woman named Pami.
It's really good and hearty. The perfect addition for those of you living in colder climates this October. This soup is probably one of the most festive fall dishes I've come across. It's delicious and the presentation options using pumpkin pieces are endless. So pretty!
You can serve it in hollowed-out mini pumpkins for really cool individual servings at a more formal fall or Halloween dinner party. You can also use a full-sized hollowed-out pumpkin for a buffet-style spread. For a more upscale party, you can always use a pumpkin-themed serving bowl.
Make sure to save the pumpkin seeds and roast them for sprinkling on top of the pumpkin sausage soup. Just serve them alongside the soup in a small dish. Guests can sprinkle and snack on them at their leisure. Not everyone likes roasted pumpkin seeds.

- Make sure you retain the top of the pumpkin to keep soup warm.
