    Yum! Used fat free fromage frais instead and worked fine. Whole family enjoyed for dinner (including 5-year-old son and 18-month-old daughter). Will definitely make again.  -  19 Mar 2011

    Great soup! I made this and it was a massive hit in our house, even with my six year who says that she doesn't like courgettes!  -  07 Aug 2011
