    Very, very good. I added more kale because I just love kale and it's nutrients are excellent. I was kind of nervous about the bacon bits, but they were great. I will definitely be making this again and again. Thanks! - 4/11/10

    I made this recipe and me and my family loved it. I added a lil more of everything because my husband loves hearty soup. It tasted just like the resteraunt or better. - 3/28/10

    Excellent recipe! I've never had it from Olive Garden, but this soup was very flavorful, a bit rich from the 'fake' cream, and hearty! I used 2 strips of smart bacon (couldn't taste it, will just leave it out next time) and no-sodium chicken bullion + water. This will be a regular in our diet! - 12/18/10

    So good! I used Gimme Lean sausage style instead of regular sausage and bacon. I enjoyed it and so did my boyfriend, but the kids didn't care for it. Trying it again with chicken sausage this time. - 10/14/10
