I used a regular red pepper instead of roasted and I left out the artichokes because I couldn't find them. I used 1 cup stock because another review said it was soupy. I don't think it would have made a difference though because of the roux. Overall very tasty and filling!

This had a good flavor and came together quickly. I skipped the broiler step because I portioned this out and took it for work lunches, so I'm sure that would have made it even better! I liked the flavor overall, but ended up adding salt and lemon juice at the end to brighten it up a bit.
