      Such a nice filling; yet light soup. Made this for lunch today and it was so delicious. I only made a couple of minor changes -- I used some crisp bacon vs. the prosciutto and unfortunately, I didn't have parsley. Otherwise made as directed and enjoyed every bit of it. Will definitely make this soup again.
