This is a delicious recipe. Very easy to make, I didn't put any bacon in it, and the only things I would do differently next time is to put in either vegetarian broth, or low sodium chicken broth. I would also cook it for maybe a half hour more, so 6 and a half hours. This soup will last a while, great to eat for a couple days, remains delicious. I love how this soup is only 5 points, and very healthy!
