“I was recently in Gettysburg where I had a bowl of sweet red pepper and gouda soup. It was really good. I couldn't find a similar recipe on this site, but I found one on a blog spot called "dinnerdoldrumsnomore". It came out just like the one I was served... So, here it is... Enjoy! --The Mad Slovak --”
