Just made this tonight with everything still on hand from Thanksgiving....I used fresh pumpkin and fat free skim evaporated milk and it was GREAT! The whole family loved it from the husband and in-laws to the children (ages 5 and 1.5)

This soup is fantastic! I've made it to serve for lunch today and I can't wait to serve it. Very rich tasting with superb flavors. A nice moderate-carb choice, too. Yum!! I used 3 T. butter, did everything else exactly as directed. Thank you for a recipe I will certainly make again.
