Sauté onion in butter in a Dutch oven over medium-high heat 7 to 8 minutes or until lightly browned. Add brown sugar; cook 2 minutes, stirring often. Add squash pulp; cook 5 minutes, stirring often. Add broth and next 4 ingredients. Cover, reduce heat to medium-low, and simmer 5 minutes. Remove from heat; cool slightly.
