Creamy Roasted Red Pepper Soup

Recipe by Manami

This is very tasty and a change from the ordinary! I found this on from a recipe of Giada de Laurentis' from her Everyday Italian program.

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.
