This soup was great! It would be great as just a plain soup too. I roasted my own red peppers, and guessed by using 4. It wasn't nearly enough, so I reduced the other ingredients. I'd probably try 7 peppers next time. I'll definitely make it again. Read More

I followed this recipe pretty closely. It wasn't my favorite. I felt that it needed something. The pepper taste needed a littele tempering. If I made this again I might try adding cream at the end like someone else suggested. I may skip the mushrooms too. They just didn't make sense to me. Read More

Excellent soup! I didn't use all the pasta only 1/3. I also added extra broth since it thickened too quickly. Added a few tbsp of whipping cream at the end. Read More

Flavorful & Fabulous! I loved this. I made it pretty much to the recipe except that my grocery store only had ONE 24 oz jar left! To make up for what I was missing I took three fresh red peppers and broiled them until the skins bubbled - then removed the skins and pureed them up. I can't say enough about the flavor of this soup - although next time I might try it without the mushrooms. I don't think the mushrooms brought too much to the party and I think it would be prettier without them. Read More

A very easy and very tasty recipe I've made it several times now. When I don't have tortellini I sometimes 2 tablespoons of tomato paste and heavy cream to make this more of a bisque. With some warm crusty bread this is comfort food at its best! Read More

I didn't have mushrooms or tortellini so I left them out - it was still excellent. Even my little ones liked it. Read More

I have made this recipe four or five times and it is delicious. I adjusted the broth and amount of tortellini because it came out more like a stew the first time I made it. Will definitely make this one again! Read More

I made this last night was pretty darn good. However I did cut back on the garlic omitted the pasta added a splash of cream and the most special addition cedar plank grilled sea scallops. Now that was a great combination. Read More

This was surprisingly good for how simple it is. It's a little on the spicy side but I personally like it that way. I would make this again. Read More
