I am so sorry dear friends that I have been away for so long, if you read my other blog, you know a lot has been happening in my life. Regardless here is a new recipe, I hope you all enjoy!

You will need
2tbs evoo
1tbs butter
1medium onion chopped
2pounds zucchini trimmed and sliced
1tes dried oregano
2 1/2 veggie stock
4ounces dolcelatte cheese, rind removed, diced
1 1/4 light cream
Salt and pepper 
Fresh oregano and dolcelatte to top 

Heat oil and butter in large sauce pan until foaming. Add onion and cook gently for about 5 min. Do not allow it to turn brown. 
Next add the zucchini , oregano and salt/pepper. Cook, stirring often, for 10min. Pour in stock, bring to a boil. 
Lower the heat, half cover and let simmer for 30min. Stir in cheese now.
Process the soup in a blender or processor until smooth then strain into clean pot. 
Add cream slowly while stirring over low heat. Do not let it boil. Season to taste- you can also add more stock if the soup is too thick.
