    This is really fantastic and today is the second time I'm making it for company. I took the advice to serve it in individual 'mini' pumpkins. To really top it off, I cored and roasted the mini pumpkins first to give the feel and look that the soup is supposed to be in there. FANTASTIC! Thanks for posting!

    I LOVE this recipe! It really looks chic. I used smaller pumpkins from my garden and made individual serving bowls by cutting them in half. I cut a thin slice from bottom of "bowls," so that they would set flat on the table.

    I make this recipe all the time. It is fantastic!! The last couple of times I have varied by roasting the pumpkin which makes it taste even better !!

    I live in Germany, and pumpkin isn't half as popular here as it is in North America; needless to say, my in-laws were apprehensive about eating something that came from a pumpkin. They, however, loved the dish once they tried it! Excellent recipe!

    Just blendd the lot when done with a stick mixer in pot. Blendd in some parsley too. Added a dollop of cream to each bowl when served instead of b4. Luvly
