Nutrition & Calorie Comments  

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.
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.
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.
We don't have low fat cheddar cheese here, so I'm going to make do with the regular Kraft cheddar cheese
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..
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.
Don't mind the calories, but the sodium is really high.
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.
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!
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
The sodium is a bit high
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.
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?
