If you are needing a perfect fall soup recipe, this Copycat Panera Autumn Squash Soup is going to be perfect. Soup during the fall is a staple in our household. I purchase cans of soup for the kiddos to make a quick lunch with and also make some soups for the family to enjoy. I shared quite a few soups with you last fall like our Slow Cooker Bean Soup and also our Copycat Panera Broccoli Soup too! This CopyCat Panera Autumn Squash Soup was “Over the Top” delicious! I think I told all of my friends and extended family how tasty it was and how they would NEED to make this soup this fall. I have enjoyed Panera Autumn Squash Soup at Panera a few times in the past with a side salad. I just never thought to make it on my own at home. My hubby is great with copycat recipes so I had him make this one for us. He took a trip to Panera and immediately decided to make his copycat version after tasting all the flavor profiles. I will now be enjoying Autumn Squash Sup at home and saving some $$’s.
