    I threw this is in the slow cooker, which doesn't need the butter then. Also, I subbed some low fat milk for half of the broth to reduce salt and add calicum. - 5/11/09

    Sounds great and I would add 1/2 a small butternut squash to round out the flavor; plus use EVOO to saute not margarine..a healthier fat!! Serve with a dollop of FF plain yogurt and a sprinkle of chopped walnuts. - 4/16/09
