    I puree the squash first in step one. In step two I put the celery, onion and garlic in a food processor/blender then add squash to it and run until smooth and put it in back in with the soup. Same end result but less steps!

    Delicious! This has become a family favorite for the winter months. I also add chopped carrots to the onions & celery.

    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 soup really hit the spot on a recent cool evening. My husband liked it so much that he wants me to make it again next week when his mother comes to visit.

    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!
