Simona this soup looks delicious and is perfect especially with your crusty bread and cheese. Thanks for linking this wonderful recipe to Creative Concoctions.


The soup looks tasty! The cheese crisps are a great idea! So simple and 100% from cheese - thank you for inspiration :)


Interesting-looking squash. Hmm... I agree that a good soup is perfect on a rainy day. Yours sounds delicious, especially with the cheese crisps. Yum!!!

Delicious looking!

I feel almost envious and can't wait for the first butternut squash to hit the market.
(Well, first things first, spring and summer vegetables are what I am looking forward right now!)

The word zucca to this day evokes memories of watching the movie "Giant" (in Italian), and hearing Elizabeth Taylor exclaim "La mia bella zucca!" (referring to her pretty head). I thought it was so funny. Still is. ;-)


That wonderful! Sadly (or not) my last butternut had to go to the compost pile.... but, next year!


pensavo che unire queste due arancionissime potesse risultare troppo dolce, ma l'idea di aggiungere la paprika, le altre spezie e una buona dose di parmigiano equilibrerà la cosa, buonissima domenica, ciauzzzzzzzzzzz!

My pleasure, Ivy. I am glad you like the recipe.

Ciao Catalina. I love cheese crisps: they take a few minutes to make and they are fun (though addictive ;).

Ciao Paz. I got attracted by its unusual appearance and was rewarded by its great flavor.

Ciao Merisi. I must admit that I have not seen that movie. I wonder what she says in the original (pumpkin?). I sometimes exclaim "Che zucca!" when I do something not exactly smart. I confess that I still have a couple of butternut squashes in storage. I can claim I am running an experiment on their longevity, but in reality, I am afraid of baking them because I know that then I will have to wait at least 5 months until the next crop.

Oh no, Katie. Now I am worried about mine. I will bake them soon: composting them would break my heart.

Ciao Astro. La zucca che ho usato non e' molto dolce e poi certo le spezie aiutano ad equilibrare il sapore. Ciao!


Your carrot-squash soup looks delicious and those cheese crisps are the perfect accompaniment to it. Thanks for joining in this week at Souper Sundays. I always love having you! ;-)
