    Made this last night, my husband and I both loved it. I had some bok choy and cabbage in my fridge so I added them. It was really, really good, can't wait to make it again. Thanks for sharing! - 9/19/10

    This soup was incredibly flavorful. I loved it and have already passed it on to several people. Thank you so much! Best of all, with the exception of the mushrooms, I grew all the veggies myself (organically, of course). Thanks again! - 9/28/08

    Looks like a great recipe. After bacon fat is drained out, I'm sure it is a fine and low in fat. Also, I would try 1 or 2 pieces of bacon and diced ham in this soup too. Good recipe. - 9/20/08

    This is a good soup...loved the flavor from the bacon, garlic, and onions...left out the orzo for gluten free...added a pinch each of rosemary and thyme. - 7/5/08
