    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 - 5/29/08

    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. - 2/17/09

    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 content...so people need/eat more calories. If you like less cals like me, modify the recipe, you know how by now, I'd hope.. - 5/29/08

    I made a similar squash soup but without the cheese and cream. I also added onion, and a pinch of nutmeg. It's delicious. - 5/29/08

    Serving size sounds like a big bowl so I don't think the cal are out of line. Perhaps cutting cheese in half and adding something like ginger or dash of hot pepper sauce for kick. - 5/29/08

    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. - 5/29/08

  • bothers me no instruction for cooking squash...roast in the oven 30 minutes at 400 degrees? Only a guess...only adds about 30 - 40 minutes of cook time for preparing. - 12/8/09

  • Thank you. I do a stewed squash that is similar. I like the adding of cheese & 1/2 & 1/2 for extra flavor.
    Will be making tonight :) - 6/6/09

  • 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. - 6/6/09

  • Want to put this together in an easier manner? Melt butter as directed. Mix flour with 1/4 cup of the half & half. Add it and remainder of liquid to butter. When it's hot, add the squash. Low boil about 1 minute. Remove from heat, stir in cheese. Could replace 1/3 - 1/2 liquid w/ chicken stock. - 4/17/09

  • 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. - 2/17/09

  • I made this recipe and with a little alteration was a wonderful replacement for potatoes on our dinner plates. I added onion and a little bit of carrots and of course garlic. Then I used my hand blender and left out the flour. - 6/3/08
