Because this soup is very easy to prepare, I reach for it often in the summer when I'm busy playing volleyball and baseball. It's also a great way to use up excess zucchini.

MY REVIEW
Reviewed Jul. 20, 2010

Soup was very good. I used more like 3 cups of sliced zucchini. I found that after adding the broth, it only needed to cook for another 5 minutes for the veggies to be tender. I also added 2/3 cup mashed potato flakes at the end (after milk is heated through) to thicken the soup. Delicious!
