I Can't Count How Many Times I've Made This Recipe. I Skip Out On The Bacon, Use Vegetable Stock As An Alternative & Add Parsley. Eventually I Will Follow The Directions Exactly (Some Family Members Don't Eat Pork) So That I Can Have A Taste With The Bacon, But I Definitely Have No Complaints So Far. In Fact, I'm Preparing It For A Potluck At Work Tomorrow. Yay!!!!!!!!!!

I love it!! And so does my whole family and a few coworkers! It's hearty and filling. I added my own flair to it by adding a few cloves of fresh garlic, and kind of doubled everything to feed a few more people than normal. After one bowl we were all full! It also reheats very well for leftovers!
