Followed recipe exactly except added both carrots and 1 small red pepper and 1 small yellow pepper. Easy and quick but the marjoram is so overpowering that I had to add more broth and a alrge sprinkle of grated parmesan to each bowl to be able to stand it and it is still too strong. I am the only one in my family eating it. I only had ground marjoram so I must need it for some recipe but I bought dried marjoram as I did not know how to convert measurements. Now I don't know what I will do with all the marjoram as obviously we do not like it. I will make the soup again only using 1/3 of the marjoram (or just a sprinkle) and maybe some thyme instead as the recipe appealed to me and it really was easy even making the pesto.
