      I added 1 1/2 cups of diced tasso but you could use pancetta or even ham or bacon. It gave it a richness of flavor. I also recommend getting a good parmasan cheese like regianno, not the already grated kind. We loved it! This will become one of my staple winter soups.

      I substitute whole wheat bow tie pasta to increase fiber. This is delicious.

      This is the most wonderful soup that we've had in a long while. It's so flavorful. I add a little smoked bacon to it. I gave it to several people and the comments were the same. You have a winner here! Happyclip
