Zuccini Soup

I got this recipe from my good friend Rachel Nielson. Her and her sister's posted it on their blog. There are some real treasures of recipes on there and this one is no exception. It is just soooooo good. Creed doesn't even like soup for dinner, but he cheers when I bring this out.

Emily's Zucchini Soup

Saute until tender:
2 medium zucchini, chopped (green and yellow crookneck are pretty together)
1 medium onion, chopped
2 T parsley
1 t dried basil (use more if you've got fresh)

1/3 C flour
salt and pepper to taste, about 1 t salt and 1/4 t pepper
