I love pumpkin soup. This sounds like a wonderful addition to the file.
Thanks!

Looks great, Queequeg! I think I'd double it (so I wouldn't have half a pumpkin leftover) and freeze some. Might toss some of those Barilla cheese tortellini in there to satisfy the "chew factor".

What's the U.S. equivalent of 800 ml?

Thanks!

Lee

P.S. Got a kick out of your "signature" :-)

Thank you Queequeg for the great receipt of Spiced Roast Pumpkin And Winter Vegatable Soup.

I will definitely have to try the receipt.

Have a happy Sunday.

As soon as temperatures start dropping here I'm definately going to give your soup a try. Nothing like a good pumpkin soup on a chilly evening
