I've made it twice - once with the cream, once without; both times with vegetable stock instead of chicken stock; both times without the bacon (I tried turkey bacon on the first attempt, but it didn't work so I started over without it). It is excellent. Everyone I made it for loved it. I agree with other reviewers that it is heavy on the basil, so I would cut it in half. It is a very yummy, very easy soup which has a sophisticated taste! It has even more of a kick without the cream, but it was really, really good as a non-dairy, vegetarian soup.
