"I live on good soup, not on fine words."
Take your time and simmer this soup slowly so that it infuses with the bacon and sage. The chick peas should be slightly soft and will add creaminess to the soup. With a nice slice of sourdough or gluten-free bread, this is a perfect meal.
I love canned tomatoes. They are a fantastic product because it means that fairly good tomatoes are available to you for sauces and such year round. Experiment with different brands to find a quality product that you like. My favorite brand is Muir Glen Organic tomatoes. They are consistently bright red and flavorful. You can buy whole, peeled, not peeled, crushed, etc
