I love using summer squash in soups. This one's hearty as is, but stir in chopped ham for an extra wallop of flavor. Serve this warm or chilled. —Sara Hornbeck, Knoxville, Tennessee

"My family enjoyed this for dinner last night. I subbed fresh basil from my garden for the parsley. A delicious, light summer soup!"
