Thank you for reviewing this recipe.



This was so easy to make and it was delicious.... I think I'm going to put the beans in the blender because I have some picky eaters in my house. That way they don't have to **** into a bean heee heee sneaky sneaky

I love this soup. I make it everytime I make a spiral ham and I love spiral ham. The soup is filling and so tasty. I just omit the peas.

Easy and Good Ham and white Bean Soup

I love this recipe! It's realy good and so hearty. I serve it with cornbread. It makes a cold day a lot warmer. My sister has her own recipe and I loved it but this one is better.

Easy and Yummy

I made this with some left over ham so I did not have as much as the recipe call for, but I added extra peas and beans. It was very tasty, and without asking my husband said this recipe was a keeper.
