    Ridgely's Note:

    Tomatoes, onions, pesto and cream--doesn't get any better that. A friend gave me this recipe that comes from a local upscale restaurant called Chef's Table. Excellent!

      So I went to this Chef's Table place and that is what inspired me to make this soup! WHAT LUCK! I made my own pesto from basil that I got at the farmers market. I would have made the pesto stronger which would have given the soup a better flavor...but that was my fault. This soup was VERY GOOD!! I may next time use a fat free half and half to cut down on calories and fat. I will also use some type of strong flavor cheese to put on the top as well. Parmeasan?? THANKS!

      This was fabulous. I didn't have any prepared pesto on hand, so I fudged it with a whole lot of basil, some minced garlic, some parmesan cheese, adjusted to taste. I made this with woooonderful farmer's market tomatoes, and it was a great way to pay them homage.

      This recipe is divine. The soup is simple to make and is guaranteed to make your tastebuds sing. To complement the rustic theme, I served it with shaved parmesan cheese on top of the soup and a loaf of crusty bread on the side - beautiful. Thanks for sharing Ridgely!
