I think the first sentence in the directions should read: Cook SQUASH and onion in salted water for five minutes. But, having said that, I'm going to try this recipe for an After-Thanksgiving dinner. I have several different types of squash left- not enough to freeze and too many to feed to the chickens- so I think this will be an excellent way to use up some of them. I'll stir some cubed leftover turkey in with the soup to make it a complete meal. Sounds delicious... I'll be back with our reaction next week.
