One of the nifty things about this recipe it can be made quickly with a preparation and cooking time of about 45 minutes, the secret is to have the squash cooked in advance. With the squash cooked ahead of time you merely peel a couple of potatoes, saute your veggies, throw it all together and simmer for 10 minutes, and it is ready to be devoured.

Valerie, great recipe. I'm always on the hunt for a good soup recipe. Winter is the season for soup. This interests me. I think this one might be a good one to pressure can and store away for winter consumption when the summer squash glut happens. I'm going to keep in on my list for year 2021 when the squash starts to fill my harvest buckets. ***** Thank you so much for sharing. ***** Have a great soup making day. Nebraska Dave Urban Farmer.
