    I personally loved this recipe. My children ate it also but were suspicious that they were eating something healthy. If I make it regularly they won't have problems with it. I used about 9 small tender squash and peeled it, but did not seed it. It made enough soup for my family of 5 (including 2 teens) plus enough for me to eat for lunch the next day.  -  16 Aug 2001  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)


    We used one cup of cheddar cheese and a splash of cream, instead of the processed cheese. Mmm mmm mmm.  -  09 Sep 2009  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)


    The first two time I made this, I used shredded sharp cheddar and my family and I LOVED it. Then I made it once using the processed cheese that the recipe calls for. My husband still liked it, but I didn't like it at all. I'm really glad I tried it with regular cheese first, because I would not have made it a second time. I still gave this recipe 5 stars because it is SO good using regular husband said he could eat it that way every day. Too bad the regular cheese makes it so fattening. It does need added salt and a good bit of pepper when not using the processed cheese, but it's well worth it.  -  11 Sep 2008  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
