"I made this soup the other night and my husband and I both raved about how delicious this soup is! I didn't have dried savory so I used thyme instead. I used an acorn squash. The soup also had a nice color to it, I will be making this a lot thru Fall/Winter months, its perfect for 4 good bowlfuls. Thank You for a great recipe, we love it!"

"This has become one of our favorite winter meals with warm bread. Add a drop of sourcream and crumbled bacon on top makes it perfect!"

"I made this without the garlic and used skim milk in place of the cream. I also used a light margarine in place of the butter. It lowered the fat content somewhat and was fantastic!"
