    This was good. I roasted my own peppers because I don't much care for the flavor of the stuff from a jar. I would have liked to have included some of the 'fire roasted' peppers from the olive bar at my local Meijer - not only do they taste good, but they make soup an intensely vivid color. I liked the feta, but wonder how this would taste with goat's cheese instead. I think I'll be experimenting with this one. Thanks!  -  30 May 2006  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)


    I'm only giving this recipe 3 stars because it was just OK for me, and if you need something ASAP this works. I found that the flavor was just too one dimensional for me. I don't know what I would do to change it? Use fresh herbs for sure as a start. There are better red pepper soups on this site. This isn't something I would make again unless I was in a real pinch.  -  21 Dec 2007  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)


    This soup saved me on a night where I had 30 minutes between one engagement and the next. I popped everything in the blender and could not believe how tasty everything was and how quickly this all came together. I'd like to add some additional flavor to it, but you won't find anything easier to accompany the boring cold cut sandwich.  -  20 Mar 2007  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)
