“This is a sweet and savory red pepper soup that features red onions and balsamic vinegar, along with easy to use bottled red peppers. I adapted this from a sauce recipe that I often use on chicken and pasta meals. If you want to make something more indulgent, replace the skim milk with half and half or heavy cream. Yum!”
