This is nice. I did use homemade stock instead of bouillon cubes, because I am being careful of salt content. I also used fresh garlic and parsley. My bacon wasn't sliced, so I chopped it fine. My only question about this recipe is the 20 to 25 minutes simmering time. I did simmer my soup for 20 minutes on the lowest setting of my range, but quite a lot of liquid evaporated and I had to add more water. Thank you for an interesting recipe. I'll be using it again.
