“This is a lighter copy cat version of the Tomato Soup from Safeway. I found it on the internet. It was revamped by Carol Devenot from Hawaii. I have never had the "real stuff" so I don't know what I am missing. This was very tasty though. Thick and hearty. I had lots of butternut squash left over so I steamed it for a few minutes and then froze it in 2-1/2 cup portions to make more soup later. One 4-1/2 lb squash will make about 4 pots of soup. I used 1 tsp salt and 1/2 tsp pepper. If you have an immersion blender it's alot easier than trasferring the soup to a blender since you can just puree in the pot. This definitely gets better overnight, so if you can, make it a day ahead of time. Serve this with a grilled cheese sandwich and you have a warm, hearty meal!”
