    My kind of food. Thanks! I just added some cracked black pepper. It's easy to cut sodium if you just stop and think. Use fresh beans rather than canned. Rinse the bacon. Use low sodium broth. There are things you can do! - 8/18/08

    Great recipe. Made it without bacon and basil as I didnt have any on hand. Added fresh thyme and marjoram. Topped with few shaves of cheese. It made for a creamy, thick soup with a sweet vegetable flavor. Even my husband liked it! - 5/3/10

    To make vegan, just substitute soy ham for pancetta and vegetable broth for chicken broth. Yum! I'm always up for easy AND good! - 8/18/08
