Preparation -- 10 minutes

Peel and finely chop the onion and garlic cloves. Rinse the squash, remove the ends and chop into chunks. If you're using a large squash, it's possible it has some seeds.

If it does, you can remove them. Drain the corn and chop the peppers into thin rings and set aside.

Finishing the summer squash soup -- 30 minutes

Heat a dash of olive oil in a large pan and sauté the onion and garlic for a few minutes. Add zucchini chunks and cook a few minutes more. Pour in the milk and vegetable stock along with rosemary sprigs and bring to a boil.

As soon as the soup starts to boil, lower the heat and let it simmer for about 20 minutes. Meanwhile cook the bacon is a small skillet until they're crispy.

Remove rosemary sprigs and use an immersion blender to create a smooth soup. Season with pepper and salt. Serve with corn, chili rings, bacon and grated cheese. Enjoy!
