My wonderful daughter made this recipe and brought it to her dad who wasn't feeling well. We loved it so much I asked her for the recipe. She told me it was this one on "Taste of Home" !The only change to the recipe was a little added minced garlic.

Good recipe! I used turkey sausage instead of ham. Found it quite tasty!

Followed the directions carefully. Result was this awful soup!! There was no "fixing or saving" it. No one in the family would eat it - ended up just throwing all of it down the disposal. A complete waste of ingredients & a huge disappointment!
