This is very good. A quick lunch or dinner for myself .. The addition of the pesto is what made this soup for me :) It IS somewhat , like eating very very thin mashed potatoes , but for whatever reason, that doesn't bother me! LOL I will definitely make this again ! Thanks for posting the recipe! :)
