I believe I got this off the internet a few years ago when I was looking for pressure cooker recipes, it's very good with wonderful flavour. The Beau says he can't eat the commercially made stuff anymore, he likes this best! Great soup course for your dinner party.

This soup is easy and great tasting. There are ways to make it a little more healthy, but it is pretty fattening. Taste can't be beat though!
If you're afraid of the spices, don't be! This one is superb! I had an abundance of squash this year, so I had lots of opportunity to try different recipes. This one was the yummiest so far! Thanx for sharing!
