This recipe is from a restaurant in the area called Zupas that I just learned about today. They shared two of their recipes with the public and this was one of them.

This is a very good red pepper soup. I have made it before, but this was slightly different. I added more celery, just because I love it. It didn't say if I should drain the peppers or not, so I did. I added a dash of white pepper. Also, I used 3 bay leaves - not so much for the flavor - but we have the tradition that the girl who gets the bay leaf in her bowl is the prettiest girl at the table. So I have 3 girls and need to add three ;) Made and Reviewed for Tag It Red - Thanks! :)
