This is a wonderfully simple chunky soup. I use good quality bacon. It tastes equally good made with pancetta. The dark green of the cabbage alongside the tomatoes gives the soup a beautiful colour.
Used different ingredients. I added shredded cooked chicken, carrots and brocolli stalks and lentils. was a hit with the whole family thanks - 03 Jun 2010

My husband and I thought this recipe was very good. I just used ordinary bacon and added a touch of basil and a little sugar. Most things with tomatoes needs a touch of sugar to get rid of the flat taste. Will make again. - 18 Mar 2006 (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)
