hi. thanks for sharing this wonderful recipe. i think you also need to try this one. you can have some modifications if you want in order to create more tempting recipes Harvest Pumpkin Soup SUBMITTED BY: Kathy "A very easy and great tasting soup." INGREDIENTS 2 small sugar pumpkin 3 cups chicken stock 3/4 cup heavy whipping cream 1/4 teaspoon ground nutmeg 1/2 teaspoon ground sage 1 1/2 teaspoons salt 4 tablespoons sour cream DIRECTIONS Preheat oven to 400 degrees F (205 degrees C). Cut pumpkins in half and scoop out seeds. Spray a cookie sheet with non-stick cooking spray. Place pumpkins, flesh side down on the cookie sheet and roast until soft to the touch, about 45 minutes. Remove pumpkins from oven and let cool. Once pumpkins are cool scrape flesh from skins into a food processor. Discard skins. Add chicken stock to the pumpkin and puree. Pour soup into a large saucepan and bring to a simmer over medium heat. Stir in cream, nutmeg, sage and salt. Mix well and remove from heat. Serve garnished with a dollop of sour cream Potato and Onion Soup SUBMITTED BY: Corwynn Darkholme "This is a very savory and tasty soup!"

Oh wow I have never heard of any soup with cheese in it, so it must be very different to have this in your soup, I shall give it a try and I would like to thank you for a different kind of soup.
