MY REVIEW

"I made this soup for my son who was going to a Thanksgiving pot-luck last year. It was so delicious that I wanted to keep it for myself. Unfortunately, for me, there were no leftovers. :("

MY REVIEW
Reviewed Oct. 2, 2013

"This is really, really good. Have also made with butternut squash cubes instead of pumpkin. If you make w/ squash increase simmer time to 20 min or bake cubes in oven 20 min @ 350 degrees. The remaining of this recipe is the same."
