Reviews forZucchini Bisque
"Absolutely delicious, and amazingly simple to do. I used half of the butter, and completely forgot the basil! Still wonderful. My husband, mom, and kids all agree."
"Full flavor, rich, easy to make. This is a great use for those zucchini that got too big in the garden before you noticed them!"
"Only made this recipe once, and it was SO delicious! Definately an elegant yet easy dish to prepare! Great to serve as a first course to guests! Absolutely fantastic!"
"This was very good. I think it might be a good to freeze and a good way to save some zuchinni through the winter. I only used a very little bit of butter to saute the onions and I used fat-free half and half, so it can be very healthy."
"I have made a recipe very similar to this and it was delicious, If debating whether or not to make it, do!"
