Amazing depth of flavor and texture. The seasonings develop the soup into a savory and mouthwatering masterpiece. Made this just after New Year's and substituted chopped ham for the bacon.

The blend of herbs selected by Wolfgang Puck lends a magical touch to a classic pasta sauce. As close as I have ever come to an authentic Italian sauce.
