MY REVIEW
Reviewed Jun. 26, 2012

"I have made this recipe several times. My family enjoys it very much."

MY REVIEW
Reviewed Jan. 15, 2012

"This was great and surprisingly filling. I blended the ingredients with the hand blender and it made it sort of like a veggie chowder. We had this and a slice of italian bread for lunch. Lasted me until dinner. Thanks for the recipe."

MY REVIEW
Reviewed Jun. 23, 2010

"A little too bland for my taste. It was easy to make and a nice presentation; but, for my family, it just lacked flavor. I will probably look for a similar zucchini soup recipe that has a little more substance and zip to it - just my personal preference."

MY REVIEW

MY REVIEW
