This was a warm and hearty soup. This is a great soup to add leftover ham in. Yum!
very delicous! i made it for my family and they loved it!
Nice flavor and creamy texture. I did dissolve a chicken bouillon cube in the boiling water before adding it to the vegetables. It did take awhile for the white sauce to thicken, but it was worth all that stirring for the end result of a creamy, delicious soup.
