Top Review by Zurie

MADE FOR PAC, March 2011: This is a lovely soup. The cook's ingredient description of the 1st 3 ingredients is a bit muddled, but it works. I used fewer onions, as I thought the balance would be out if the onions weighed the same as the tomatoes. I may have used more red peppers, because I baked mine at high heat, as I wanted to peel off the skins before using in the soup. So to make up for that shrinkage I used 3 red peppers. Otherwise, all I changed was to use Tabasco instead of pepper, I added a splash of Worcestershire sauce, my soup needed a little more salt, and I added dried basil because I was out of fresh. What can I say? It was a tasty soup, Chef AskCy, thanks!
