Creamy Boursin Roasted Red Pepper & Tomato Bisque {Jarred Peppers}

Tomato soup is the ultimate comfort food for a cold day. While I never, ever, will get tired of good old fashioned tomato soup, this creamy roasted red pepper bisque comes in a close second. Sweet roasted red peppers, creamy and herby boursin cheese and tangy tomatoes make for delicious, comforting bisque. The best part, it does not need to simmer all day!
