Copycat Panera Squash Soup Recipe
Calling all Panera soup lovers….this yummy recipe is for you! This is our amazing Copycat Panera Squash Soup recipe. Now you can enjoy this anytime you like and not have to leave the comfort of your own home. Today is a chilly, cloudy day outside so it is perfect weather for a warm bowl of soup. We like to garnish ours with pumpkin seeds, but that is totally optional. I love using butternut squash in the fall and winter, and this has quickly become one of my favorite recipes!
