Perfect use for left over ham. Perfect amount of veggies . I added a handful of spinach for added nutrition. Super easy and satisfying . VFE

Wonderful soup. Had an extra ham shank that I threw in the pot. Used only water. Didn't need any additional seasoning, as the broth was very flavorful. Not a pea person, so skipped those. Watching calories, so skipped butter and used a EVOO spray to saute vegetables.

This was a great recipe for a cold day. I didn't have celery so I used a can of cream of celery. Very yummy.

Mmm, mmm, mmm......talk about home cookin'!!!!!! This soup had a wonderful authenticity to it's flavor! I slow cooked a ham bone in the crockpot for about 8-10 hrs. with the rest of the ingredients except I substituted kale for the peas and added one bay leaf. Wow! Simply delicious!

Great flavor. My husband isn't a huge fan of beans, but he really enjoyed this. I was in a hurry, so I only added the potatoes for the veggies, and had extra ham so put that in too. I also left out the butter and used chicken bullion cubes to make broth.
