This is a wonderfully simple chunky soup. I use good quality Irish back bacon but if you can't get this, it tastes equally good made with pancetta. The dark green colour of the cabbage alongside the tomatoes gives the soup a beautiful colour.

My husband and I thought this recipe was very good. I just used ordinary bacon and added a touch of basil and a little sugar. Most things with tomatoes needs a touch of sugar to get rid of the flat taste. Will make again.

I couldn't find Irish bacon and used Pancetta for the first time which made the flavor of this soup fantastic. It's a true comfort meal especially when serving the recipe for Irresistible Irish Soda Bread. Thank you for sharing which brought raves from my guests!
