Even with a substitution

this recipe was a winner. I don't keep vegetable broth on hand so I subbed chicken. It was delicious. I will definitely make this again.

Creamy Roasted Red Pepper Soup

This soup is absolutely delicious. I gave some to my neighbor and she immediately requested the recipe. Next time I make this soup I might add crabmeat at the end. I highly recommend this soup.

Great soup!

I made this soup and it was delicious. I don't know why I have had a problem with squash soups and the roasted red pepper soups but they are on my #1 list from now on. I can't wait to make it for company. Well it was my son that I had here tonight so I guess he wasn't company. I mean my friends, they think I am a good cook but wait till I make and serve them this soup. Try it, you will love it. I also had porktenderloin and sweet potatoes with it. Great meal!!!
