I know y'all don't like it when people modify the recipe a ton and rate it, but we really enjoyed this with the changes we made. I halved the basil and added 1/4 tsp thyme as others suggested. I doubled all the veggies and added celery. Because of that increase, I upped the liquid to 1.5 times what it calls for... so 4.5 cups broth and 1.5 cups half and half. I used 6 pieces of bacon and added it, plus 1 cup of cheddar cheese, when I put in the cream (instead of having it as a garish). After all the cheese was melted, I pureed about 2 cups of the soup to thicken it up a little, then I let it all cook together on low for about an hour before eating. So delicious!
