    BEVERLY BOYER from Reading, PA

    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!

    dianne vigneux from windsor, ON

    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!!!

    Roasted Red Pepper Soup

    MARY Wanthal from Twin Lakes, WI

    Found the recipe on the Carnation label and made this wonderful soup when my oldest daughter was visiting. I was surprised at the great taste; she raved over it and took the recipe home wanting to make it for her family. She stated they devoured the soup and she put it on the top of her "great soup" list to serve to family and guests. It's easy to prepare, but results in a super tasty and satisfying dish by itself, or as a complement to any meal. (She also takes this to work for lunch.)

    DAWN FAIRMAN from DU BOIS, PA

    eileen conaway from GLASSBORO, NJ

    My family likes "spicey" so I simply added a little finely chopped habenero pepper and it really was enjoyed by all. The smooth and creamy flavor from the Carnation balanced well.

    Deliciously Easy

    Amelia Rodgers from UNIVERSITY, MS

    This was an easy recipe to do... and it tasted delicious. But it is a recipe you would definitely have to double if you were making it the main part of the meal. It also made a great next day meal too; I only needed to add a little milk as it seemed to thicken some over night.

    Roasted Red Pepper Soup

    Anne Marie Fahy from CALEDONIA, NY

    I made this soup for an Italian Dinner Party; I served small portions (approx 1 cup) to everyone -it was a tremendous hit. I was asked for the recipe that evening and have continued to receive requests for it. I made it again for my husband and myself (served larger portions this time) and with a salad and some crusty bread it was a wonderful meal for a cold evening. We've had a burst of warm weather here in upstate New York and I served it chilled - it was great. Thanks so much for such an easy and delicious recipe.

    This was totally awesome! I absolutely love roasted red peppers and can eat them right out of the jar. But, fresh is best! I use fresh whenever I can though and I think that just enhanced the flavor.

    Creamy Roasted Red Pepper Soup

    MARCIA BEAULIEU from NEW BRITAIN, CT

    As we love roasted red peppers, and all the ingredients are items I usually have on hand, this sounded like a winner. It was very easy to prepare and every bit as delicious as we hoped. I served it, as in the photo, with crutons and some chopped fresh parsley. With crusty bread, it was our evening meal. Truly a winner!
