  • This is one of my most favored recipes when red peppers go on sale, which is not often enough. I make mine with heavy cream instead of skim milk. I also plan ahead so I do not go over on calories or fat content for the day. Well worth in!!! - 6/24/13

  • Good and simple soup. I eliminated the milk and used my hand blender. Comparing other recipes, I might try adding thyme, basil or cilantro next time. - 10/7/08
