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

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?



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.

Bienvenue, Queequeg. What's the little creature in your avatar saying?

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
