"This soup was really good and super easy! It is a great basic recipe that would be easy enough to play with flavors (a little curry, or ginger and an apple, etc.). I followed one reviewer's advice to put the cream cheese in the blender when pureeing the soup and that worked great and saved 1/2 hour and an extra step. My soup was VERY thick, but I think my squash was closer to 2.5 pounds so maybe that was the difference. I served it with a dollop of raw cranberry relish on top--it adds some zing and cuts the richness of the soup."

"Made this for Christmas brunch and the family thought it was pretty good (but no raves). As the other commenter mentioned, it could probably use a little more flavor--next time I'll double the basil. I'll also try carmelizing the onions and mushrooms before cooking the rice. Since the rice is pre-cooked, I'm going to try it with brown rice next time. So, in summary, it's a pretty good dish that I would serve again, but there's definitely some experimental possibilities... ooh what about substituting some pepperjack cheese for the cheddar, some chili powder for the basil, and throw in a can of green chiles..."
