"I am not a fan of butternut squash, but I decided to make this because it looked so easy and perhaps my taste buds would change. Taste buds did not change, but I tripled the recipe and took it to work where they all thought it was excellent."

"I had first tried Butternut soup at a restaurant and wanted a recipe to make at home, I found this recipe and its better than the restaurant version I had tried! I make this soup a lot whenever butternut squash is in season, I love this soup as does my husband, it is a good compliment to BBQ beef flanken ribs or BBQ chicken, this soup also freezes well."

"This is really good! Did make a few changes because of what I had on hand. Used 4 cups pureed squash, 2 cups pureed sweet potato (light colored one), 1/2 cup chopped onions and 2 cans of fat free, 30% less sodium chicken broth. Added 1/2 tsp of ground cinnamon and a dash of nutmeg. This addition made it taste like we had at Shari's a couple nights ago. I did cheat and buy the already cut butternut squash at Costco so it made it really fast to prepare, Will definitely make this again. It will freeze well for another quick meal."

"The salt is prohibitive , l use fat free/low sodium veggie broth, season vegetables b/4 roasting. 1/2 squash, put a little butter,S&P,seasonings on aluminum lined cookiesheet,roast, scoop out squash , remove fibrous parts, then add to other ingredients. Great soup otherwise. Can add sour cream at end to make creamier!"

"I took the other reviewer's advice and roasted the veggies--squash, a medium onion, the potato and 3 cloves of garlic. I pureed all the roasted veggies together and added it to vegetable broth. A few pinches of sage, curry and garam masala were used to season. Also used half and half. Really wonderful recipe!!"

"In answer to the one said cutting up the squash was hard an would buy already cooked squash.. Well answer to that cut the squash in half clean out seeds and place on cookie sheet sprinkle with a LITTLE oil bake at 350 degrees for 30 to 35 min. Roasted squash inhances the soup flavors. Love to cook"
