A warm comforting soup for a chilly day. It is a favorite!

Excellent recipe. Party of Six; everyone loved it! Even my husband, who does not care for soup said he would eat this again.

MY REVIEW
Reviewed Jan. 7, 2011

Delicious soup! I skipped the blender step completely, and the texture was still fine. This has great squash flavor, but needs some zing. Ginger might do it, as another reviewer suggested; I tried a bit more salt and some pepper sauce. Also added a chopped up carrot or 2 with the vegetables, for color.

MY REVIEW

I've made this recipe several times this fall, it is awesome!! I do add 1 or 2 tsp. of ginger for extra zing, love it!!
