"Delicious!!! Very simple yet flavorful. I added just a dash of red pepper and parmesan. I will be making this again later this week when my mother in law visits."

"I was surprised at how great and flavorful this soup was! I added crushed red pepper and it set it over the top! Super easy too!"

"This is a nice creamy soup. I never would think of making soup out of summer squash. My neighbors enjoyed it also."

Reviewed Sep. 6, 2012

"I really thought I would enjoy this, but it was just okay. I added parmesan cheese to the top of each bowl to add some flavor because the soup seemed rather bland. I don't plan to make this again."

Reviewed Aug. 5, 2012

"I have a question, rather than a review. I'm trying to use larger squash, so can anyone give me a clue as to the actual measurement in cups or some such. Or weight? That would be even better. Thanks to anyone that can jump in with that."
