This is a BIG batch of soup - like double the amount of my standard recipes. I would say it serves 8-10 people. I made it for a lot of friends and wanted extra on hand for my family throughout the week! If you want to cut it in half, to make a smaller batch for like 3-4 people, feel free!
I originally set out to create a butternut squash lasagna soup but I didn't really love it with lasagna noodles! That's why there's ricotta cheese involved here. I swapped out the lasagna noodles for tortellini and loved it way more!! I also added a ton of spinach leaves after I was done filming and that was a great addition too.
ONE MORE THING. The texture of the soup is very customizable and will vary depending on the size of the squash. I ate it as is, which was more on the thick side as far as soups go. I ended up adding broth to the rest of it that I shared with family members, it was more soupy and less saucy that way, if that makes sense. Since I was storing it in the fridge, I didn't want the tortellini to soak up all of the soup and thought more broth was a good idea! So definitely pay attention to the thickness and texture as you're going and adjust it (with more or less broth) to whatever you prefer!!
