    About this recipe: A lovely, light and refreshing soup that is very easy to make and has a distinctive flavour, which I adapted from a pasta recipe. Also keeps well and is just as good reheated.

    Delicious soup with good flavour and my husband enjoyed this one having tried a few other courgette soup recipes . Did not add Parmesan as used a stock pot knorr vegetable stock by Marco White. Did not need cheese . May swirl some yoghurt or thin cream for dinner party. Lemon and basil oil are perfect piquant addition ! - 06 Nov 2013
