Husband didn't think it was terrible but I did. The worst CL recipe I've ever made. I triple checked the recipe because I couldn't figure out what I did wrong but I did everything exactly to the recipe except used full fat milk which should have made things better.

Wonderful soup! I served this to my company and then had to hand out the recipe. I made it in advance and froze it. Will definitely make this again.

I made this last night for a family dinner with mixed reviews. For me the soup was too vinegary but other than that pretty bland and tasteless .There were other family members who enjoyed the soup and particularly felt the pesto enhanced the flavor. I make a lot of soup and this one for me missed the mark. I will not try it again. That being said I am a big fan of Cooking Light and truly benefit from the seasonal nature of the recipes.

Nice hearty bisque. I made it by the directions and was very pleased. It definitely got better with time making this a great recipe if you want to make it ahead.

Just ok. DD (17) didn't like it at all. Having an immersion blender really made it go together quickly but I doubt I'd make this again.

I thought this soup was good, but nothing amazing. I subbed original almond milk for the regular milk b/c I am dairy-free. And added 1/4 t kosher salt to make up for lack of cheese I omitted. I also used 1/8 t cayenne for kids taste. So, this might have been better without all my subs. That said, it was good, but I probably won't make again.
