With bread and extra pancetta (I often double that too), I'm usually in for about $30. However, I can get enough meals that it is totally worth every penny. I do recommend the Trader Joe's Italian baguette though. It's got a bit more of a crust and a bit more gluten. Dip that with unsalted butter into the soup, and it's awesome.
Also, I realized one of the things that I ran out of that I think makes a big difference--white pepper. I like adding that to sauces, because if you don't overdo it, it can be subtle but it has a long tail.

Italian sausage and spinach soup is also excellent.
