I gotta tell ya this is my go to recipe for end of summer. I grow lots of summer squash and this is by far one of my favorite soup recipes. Not sure what the other comments were saying about ingredients missing from recipe. I printed this out in 2014 and I got all the ingredients on my recipe. Very good recipe. Thank you~
