"This hearty soup has a nice blend of Italian flavors. However, I personally will leave out the bacon next time. I like my bacon crisp & it turned out soggy from cooking in the soup."

"Followed recipe 1st time and found it to be very good, but a tiny bit too garlicy. Next time used half as much garlic and a few drops of Tabasco, and replaced the chicken with frozen shrimp. Now, that's good! Even my picky granddaughter loved it."

"I had to cut the recipe in half - there are only two of us - but we loved it! Great with a salad and nice, crusty bread. We'll definitely have this again."
