    Manami's Note:

    Classic comfort food is yours in less than a half-hour. Serve with crusty whole-grain bread buttered with freshly grated Romano or Parmesan sprinkled on the bread. Make it vegetarian if you choose by omitting the chicken and chicken broth and adding a can of garbanzo beans or cannellini beans and vegetable broth. EatingWellNewsletter

      What an excellent low carb soup. It is packed full of vegetables and really goes together in a flash. I used 1 boneless, chicken breast and red onion for the shallot. The onion and chicken were sauteed in the oil until the chicken was no longer pink. The squash was added and cooked for a couple of minutes before adding the remaining ingredients. The recipe says it serves 2, my finished soup served 3 nicely. Made fo *My 3 Chefs*
