To my friend bridget Thank you so much for sharing the recipe of "roasted tomato basil soup " I like it so much, I do follow your recipe except, use any tomatoes what I have on hand  from  our little garden need to use up soon, And I'm glad that I use these basil from the garden too,,
This kinds of soup is something different from my " Asian foods" I never have it until last week at your house and  I enjoy it,,,,I think I use to much red pepper  though, because I noticed  Mark was sweating when he ate the soup :)
sorry I didn't taste it,,,I'm still fasting LoL,,,,and of course is not Too "spicy hot" for me and you,,,,you know I'm not follow measurement on red pepper part  obviously i did on purpose :)
