      Wow, what a terrific soup JustJanS. My husband loved this, he had two bowls and went back and emptied the pot. It was lovely, rich, thick and full of flavor. I enjoyed the different depths of flavor in this soup. Made exactly as written wouldn't change a thing. I used Herbs de Provence as my seasoning of choice. Thank you for sharing this wonderful recipe, which we will be enjoying often.

      This soup is very easy to make and has a wonderful flavor. The first night I ate it I thought it was just ok, and then I realized I had forgotten to add the cream. I added it to the rest of the pot and what started out as a just an ok soup turned into something incredible tasting. I froze the leftovers so that I would be able to take with me to work...especially when it is cold and rainy. This is a keeper, thanks for creating it Jan.

      I made this a while back and forgot to leave feedback. I had a ton of ham leftover from Easter and made this up with a few changes. I pretty much tossed everything in my slow cooker with some carrots and green beans instead of peas. Forgot to add the cream. It turned nicely. So, thanks for posting it.
