    Great recipe – hot or cold. Easy to make. I added some nutmeg to enhance the flavor.

    Easy and delicious! I added cooked shrimp to the final soup to make it more hearty.

    Best tasting squash soup ever. Everyone raved. I did use homemade chicken stock and left out the goat cheese. It is delicious.
