CSA Summer Squash Soup

For those of you with CSA shares or friends with gardens and/or a garden yourself, you know about overabundance of summer squash. Here is one of my favorite things to do with said squash. It uses up a lot of squash and it is one of the few soups I find light enough to eat during the summer months.
