  2. My husband (the family cook) likes to make a red pepper/tomato sauce for pasta. I have to watch my potassium intake due to a medication I take and red peppers are lower in potassium than tomatoes (a great source of potassium for most people). I've found I love the combination. I'm sure this soup is delicious. Alana from the UBC.
