Reviews forCream of Butternut Squash Soup
"This soup was very easy to make and was delicious. I made it according to the instructions but I had about 1 1/2 pounds of squash instead of just 1 pound. I also used an envelope of Lipton extra noodle soup mix because that is what I had on hand. The soup was thick as the extra noodle soup may have contributed to the extra thickness. It was rich and buttery tasting and I will definitely make it again."
