Recipe by Michelle S.

This is SO easy and tastes SO good. Impressive enough to serve company. If I remember correctly I got this in a Pillsbury cookbooklet.

For an easy, ready-in-10-minutes soup, it's really good. The swirled pesto added a nice flavor and a pretty presentation. I think it could use a little extra flavor. Maybe sauteed fresh minced onions or some herbs/spices? Thanx for posting!
