Pumpkin mashed.potatoes are yummy. And pumpkin bread.

Really wish my manager would fix my heating element in my oven. I want to bake my pie pumpkin.

No.  I have to tell you, I"m a really picky eater.  And there are a whole lotta things out there that just sound too "weird" for me to even think of trying.  Pumpkin (or squash) soup is one of them.  However, I will eat pumpkin or squash (has to be winter squash, you know, orange inside) just as a plain side dish with butter and some brown sugar.  I also love pumpkin pie.  You can use the regular winter squash (or yams) in place of pumpkin.  This is a hoot, because some of my kids won't eat squash or yams... and I have slipped these things by them time after time by using it in place of pumpkin in a pie, and they NEVER notice it, all they see is orange stuff in a pie shell, and yum, it's pumpkin pie.  Bwa-ha-ha-ha!!

The pumpkin soup would not taste much - if any - different.  the only real variation would be the recipe they used to cook it.  If you made two pots from the same recipe, one with pumpkin and one with squash, you probably couldn't tell the difference at all. 

Quoting emilyrosenj:

No I haven't. I have had butternut soup, its good.

Yeah that's what I was figuring, they are so close in consistency!
