An enjoyable soup. I didn't find the amount of garlic listed in this recipe so went to foodnetwork and found that it should be 3 cloves. I added much more mascarpone (as I had a lot to use) and that made the soup richer and tastier.

This came out very well for me. I used roasted peppers that were in oil and seasoned with garlic and oregano and it was delicious! I may use more peppers next time to make it thicker.
