On a visit to my mom’s last week, I shared my abundance of summer squash with her. She remembered an Italian soup that my grandma used to make and we got to work in the kitchen. The outcome was a pleasant surprise.
Just when I thought I couldn’t eat one more bite of summer squash, this recipe change everything and I can’t wait to make it again.
It is surprisingly sweet and savory, and best of all it is super simple to make.
