Ham and Vegetable Soup

5 slices bacon
2 large leeks with 2 inches of green top, cut in half lengthwise and thinly sliced (about 5 cups)
4 celery stalks, thinly sliced (about 1 1/2 cups)
6 garlic cloves, minced
2 tablespoons chopped fresh rosemary
1/2 (16-ounce) package precut carrot chips or slices (about 2 1/2 cups)
1 1/2 pounds parsnips, cubed (about 4 cups)
10 cup vegetable broth
4 cups coarsely chopped cabbage
3 cups diced cooked ham
1/2 teaspoon freshly ground pepper
Chopped fresh Italian parsley

Cook bacon in a large Dutch oven over medium heat until crisp; crumble and set aside, reserving drippings (about 2 tablespoons) in pan. Add leeks and celery to pan with drippings; cook, stirring occasionally, over medium-high heat 6 minutes or until tender. Add garlic and rosemary; cook 1 minute. Add carrot and next 5 ingredients; bring to a boil. Reduce heat, and simmer, uncovered, 25 minutes or until vegetables are tender. Discard ham bone. Ladle into individual soup bowls; sprinkle with reserved crumbled bacon and parsley. Garnish, if desired.
