Hey this is similar to my Tortellini Soup, instead of Chicken there is Bacon in my soup, check it out. Yes it sounds like the Fairy tale about the nail soup :) When a woman made this delicious soup out of nothing :) That is also what I love about making my own soup. Will try yours when I have the ingredients to throw in it, Much regards
