Recipe by MizEmerilLagasse

There is only one word to describe this soup and that word would be YUM! My Fiance made this for me on our second date and he has just now decided to give me the recipe and let me share it with all of you. I hope you enjoy it, it took allot to get it from him!

The soup was a little thin to me, tho I only used regular cream instead of heavy cream and thickened it with cornstarch. I made my own recipe pesto too. Great concept for a soup, but I think I'll probably tweak it some next time I make it! Thanks for the great idea!
