A lot of calories. No flour, Use Kraft Fat Free Shredded Cheddar... 45 calories. per 1/4 cup Like the idea but not the way it is made. Submitted by:

This sounds like a good recipe to try. If you didn't want so much fat, perhaps you could use lower fat ingredients. But I think it sounds pretty good myself. Submitted by:

What about substituting the flour with corn starch? This should lower the carbs. Reminds me of the acorn soup my lil gramma used to make. Submitted by:

We don't have low fat cheddar cheese here, so I'm going to make do with the regular Kraft cheddar cheese Submitted by:

Fat free shredded cheddar won't hurt the taste, but will cut the calories. But people really should lay off the author for their calorie people need/eat more calories. If you like less cals like me, modify the recipe, you know how by now, I'd hope.. Submitted by:

Using unsalted butter might help reduce the sodium in this recipe. But if I made this recipe, I would substitute OLIVE OIL to butter anyway. Submitted by:

Don't mind the calories, but the sodium is really high. Submitted by:

The sodium content is high for this dish but if you if you get a reduced fat half & half and 2% or reduced fat cheese, the sodium may get better. Submitted by:

I didn't make this yet, but it seems like something that would be good. I wouldnt cut the calories more then they already are because it may loose the good flavor. You already use 2% cheese and fat free half and half. Maybe just have half a serving as a treat! Submitted by:

I noticed that everyone is commenting about calores. I don't think that it's too bad. You could make a meal of it by adding a garden salad with low cal dressing, and you'd have a meal for less than 500 cals. I usually aim for less than 500 calories. I'm always looking for new ways to make squash Submitted by:

The sodium is a bit high Submitted by:

would think that is the cheese thats responsible for the high calorie count. I love squash soup,so may try it without the cheese, just wont be as thick. Submitted by:

I like the sound of this yet the calorie content is high. I think I'd try to cut some of the calorie somehow. Any ideas anyone? Submitted by:
