"My family and friends LOVE this recipe and request it often! I make it without the basil or bacon bits. Saw it made first at a Taste of Home cooking school (they didn't add basil/bacon at that time) and knew I had to try it. Delicious and goes well with soup for a super bowl party or at a big dinner like Thanksgiving!"
