My husband and I really liked this recipe! Beside the fact that it is a great comfort food, I really like the possibility for creative adjustments (we are thinking kielbasa and frozen peas will be a good variation!). Also, it's an easy set of ingredients to keep on hand for an unexpected cold or windy day when the grocery store just doesn't sound appealing!

I subbed the ham for canned chicken like a previous comment b/c my husband doesn't like ham. It was ok, but I probably wont make again. On a side note, how are you going to give a recipe you haven't made a 2 star b/c you don't eat cheese?

I would change some of the ingredients because I don't eat hardly any cheese! I love homemade soups and would add pasta to my soups and of course lots of broccoli and other vege's and the ham sounds wonderful will make some soup soon.

This was a good recipe and a new way to use up some of the leftover Easter ham.

I left out the broccoli and substituted canned chicken for the ham. I also used skim milk instead of 2%. But my parents and I all loved this soup. I would definitely make this again.
