This is one of my favorite winter time soups! Talk about comfort food, this is it! Perfect for a cold winter day. Very easy to make and so flavorful. Everyone I know seems to love it.
This re-heats well but it never lasts longer than a day at my house!
The combination of ham, cheese and vegetables is a definite winner.
