Ham and Lentil Soup Recipe

This actually is a combination of two soup recipes I came across and adapted. I often serve it for Sunday dinner, making enough so there are leftovers for my husband's lunch thermos. He's a bricklayer and regularly works outside during winter. We're the parents of three children—17, 16 and 11.

"Wonderful recipe. Made some changes - used pork roast instead of ham, omitted the tomatoes & sausage. It still tasted great. Hubby raved over it, so I guess I'll be making more! Thanks for the recipe."

"This was a great way to use my left over ham bone and ham. I added potatoes and some thyme to the recipe, but it was fabulous!"

MY REVIEW
Reviewed Oct. 8, 2008

"This soup is a new favorite in our house! It's fun to use other types of beans or barley for the lentils. Endless combinations."
