Loaded with ground beef, squash, tomatoes and two kinds of potatoes, this hearty soup makes a great family meal on a busy night. Go ahead and substitute any of the vegetables with those that better suit your tastes.
Roasting the squash really adds a wonderful flavor to this delightful pureed soup. If you want a true vegetarian dish, simply substitute vegetable stock for the chicken broth.
