Carrot Soup With Basil Pesto Swirl
90 mins (prep 45, cooking 45)
15 ingredients

A recipe I found in Canadian Living with a couple of personal preferances. Pesto adds pizzazz to this classic fall soup and is a great way to use up the last of the basil from the garden. When your pesto is already made and in the freezer, this makes it so much faster to prepare.
