Delicious soup! I sauted the onion and carrots and about 12 ozs of cubed ham and only used 4 cups of broth. I used 1 can of Italian style petite diced tomatoes and about 4 little Campari tomatoes. This was very flavorful. I will definitely make this one again and again. So simple but some delicious.

Loved the soup recipe. I used can of diced tomatoes, and I added diced ham, 1 tablespoon of sugar, and a few handfuls of small pasta. Very tasty. Thanks for sharing, Bernice!

Made recipe as written. My husband loves soup for lunch. He had a 2nd bowl. Will try it with my homemade stewed tomatoes and my frozen green beans this winter.

Very tasty soup. Good seasoning. I added some uncooked spiral rotini, red pepper flakes and instead of fresh tomatoes I added a can of petite diced tomatoes with garlic and olive oil.
