Recipe Comments & Reviews

This was simple. I did use canned corn instead and sausage instead of ham, but it was easy and quick and good. I will make it again.
My husband isn't much for soup, but he loved this. Way to go!!
This was VERY good. Perfect comfort food for a cold winter's night. I didn't change the recipe one bit, only added a couple of things of my own, which was basil and tarragon to give it some extra flavor. Can't wait to have another mug of it tonight with my pita sandwich.
Very good and VERY easy! An excellent mid-week supper!
