MY REVIEW

Very good taste, easy and fun to make. Not a keeper, but a great recipe anyway.

MY REVIEW
Reviewed Mar. 5, 2014

We very much enjoyed this soup. I did roast all the veggies before adding them to the soup and cooked the soup on the stovetop.

MY REVIEW
Reviewed Nov. 29, 2013

I enjoyed this, thought I made it on the stove instead of the microwave. I didn't add any squash in and enjoyed it anyway.

MY REVIEW

This is a very good soup that the whole family loved. The squash really set the soup off. Will be making this again.

MY REVIEW

This is a soft, gentle soup that warms thoroughly, and my family absolutely loves it. We will be making it for cold days as often as we can.
