Your rating: None Average: 4.1 (157 votes)

This is one of the best squash soups I've eaten. The roasting deepens the flavors and the house really smells good!

Very good! Made the house smell great while I was roasting. Easy. Basically just cutting up veggies and pears. First time I used stilton cheese. Wow, if you like blue cheese this stuff is great. Creamy! Expensive but a little goes a long way.

This soup is truly incredible. I've made it many times - it's a big "go-to" for dinner parties and guests as well. It always impresses. There are so many layers of flavor - absolutely stunning soup.

This recipe is absolutely fabulous! I have been wanting to make butternut squash soup for sometime and this recipe did not disappoint. The roasted pears gave it just the right amount of sweetness along side the crumbled blue cheese - what a combination. I continue to make this soup to impress and never fail!
