“This soup has been a staple in our home for so many years I can't name the magazine I clipped it from! A great way to have homemade soup with less than an hour of time and use the left over ham. The original recipe calls for basil, but I found omitting it was more kid-friendly. I do add italian seasoning when the spirit moves. Round out the meal with crispy bread and a green salad and you have Olive Garden beat!”
