Red Pepper Dynamite Soup

Ingredients:
2 or 3 large red bell peppers
2 large garlic cloves
1 tsp margarine
1 900 ML Chicken Broth (separated)
2 large stalks celery cut into 1 inch pieces
1 large carrot, cut into 1 inch pieces
1 bag of spinach
1/2 package of Philadelphia (or other brand) cream cheese
2 tbsp tomato paste
1/2 cup cream or milk

1/2 cup mozzarella cheese-optional
bacon bits-optional

Cut the red bell peppers into 2-3 inch strips and roast both sides on barbeque (med-high) until skin side blisters and turns partially black.
Place pepper strips in paper bag for half an hour to cool and make easier to peel, then peel off the skin. Set aside.

Slice garlic cloves into thin strips and fry for a few minutes until golden in a large frying pan. Add the raw vegetables (except for the BELL PEPPERS) and pour in enough broth to cover, and boil gently until soft.

While the vegetables are cooking pour 1 cup chicken broth into a med-large sauce pan, heat on low, add half a brick of cream cheese and melt. Remove from heat.

Pour cream cheese/broth mixture and cooked vegetables into food processor (blender should work too?) and blend until fine. Pour back into saucepan, add 2 tablespoons tomato paste and 1/2 cup cream (or milk) and the remainder of the chicken broth from the container.

Blend the bell peppers in processor, add them and the shredded mozzarella cheese to the saucepan.
Stir, heating gently, (do not boil) and serve with bacon bits.

Enjoy!

A wonderful hearty soup for a cold day.
