There is an Olive Garden right next to my office and I love to get this soup and some breadsticks to go for lunch! Now I can make it on the weekends when it is cold outside! This soup is easy to make satisfying and delicious. :You could leave out the bacon and chicken broth for non meat-eaters.

Having tried so many Olive Garden soups and finding all spicy to some extent I was surprised this one isn't..I made it for a Italian night dinner party I was having..Everyone liked it,but everyone had the same response that I did(it is lacking something)I do not know what..Still it was a good soup..
