Top Review by Chef Sousy Q

Wonderful "fall-flavored" soup! I attempted to make this a bit easier by roasting the squash (cut in half vertically, remove seeds, cut sides down in 1" of water at 350 degrees for 40 minutes, allowing it to cool a bit before removing flesh with a large spoon) and, because I was not boiling peeled squash pieces, I sauteed the onion in a bit of olive oil until soft. I confess to not adding the tomato paste only because I had none in the house at the time. The squash is creamy enough in texture that I used non-fat milk in the preparation. Thank you for this recipe!
