    Sharlene~W's Note:

    This winning recipe (combined with Bada Bing Betty's Tuscan Portobello Melt (Grilled Cheese)) was Betty Fraser's entry for the Top Chef episode where the competitors had to present a "comfort food". The soup and sandwich combo will become a featured item on TGI Friday's menu. The judges raved about the and I know why. Delicious!

      I like bell peppers ok, but they are not my fav food. This soup has become one of my fav's. It is sooooooooo good. So glad I found the recipe on line as I had had it already at TGIF's. It will leave people asking how did you make that. I used the tube of basil you can get in the produce section, and it worked great & is very fresh tasting too. I just squeezed alittle in & kept tasting to get the right amount. GREAT RECIPE, and I am not a bell pepper lover, just like them ok.

      I used my immersion blender for this so I wouldn't have to process muliple batches. It worked fine but wasn't as smooth as it probably should be. Next time I'll make the extra effort and use my food processor.

      I gave this 4 stars because as written the flavors weren't as bold as we like them. So I added a bit of white wine, garlic pepper, a total of 8 packets of splenda, 3 1/2 cans (14.5 oz) tomatoes (with garlic, onions, and basil) and substituted half and half for the cream, and I didn't have any celery...that made this a 5 STAR!!!
