I specifically chose this recipe because of the spinach...and in the end I forgot to add it! I did everything else according to the recipe and it was so delicious. Very good comfort food and very tasty. I used the leftover bone from a ham that we cooked for New Year's Day. I simmered the bone in the liquid for a couple of hours and it was so tasty.

Fabulous recipe! quite filling, O yes indeedy. I omitted butter, only because I overlooked it all together-oopsie; added red pepper flakes and exchanged veggie broth for the suggested chicken. I also used dried parsley vs fresh w/o the addition of salt & pep. YUM! YUM! YUMMY! Served w/San Francisco Sourdough Bread and Chardonnay.

This one was a bomb for us. I normally love anything with spinach in it, but this was just inedible. It was way too salty, even though I didn't add any salt at all. I think that maybe if the ham had been rinsed and then sauteed in just oil instead of the oil and butter, it would have been better. I could have really liked the flavor otherwise. As it was, I had to pour it down the drain. :(

This was a wonderful soup, very filling and just perfect for a snowy day. I made this for our lunch around noon and my husband was not hungry untill about 7! I don't really like cooked celery so I used celery seed and and I also used frozen chopped spinich. I made this for Judy_Jude to honor her memory.

This recipe landed in my favorite cookbook. It is easy to make, uses things I normally have in the pantry, and is delicious! The mild soup sparkles with flavor. The oregano shines, the spinach is the star, and the eggs give it a velvety appearence. Lovely. I did a few things differently: I omitted extra salt, used a pinch of the red pepper flakes, added a can of drained whole kernel corn, used frozen spinach (thawed & squeezed dry). Made in Judy's memory during the Cookathon.

This recipe was made in honor of Judy- Jude and especially for the "Cookathon" in memory of her (1/09). Yes, another 5 star recipe from Judy. This is the soup for a cold, winter day.. Hearty and tasty! Please note that the original recipe ingredients might result in a soup that is a little to salty. So cook according to your taste; less salty ham, low sodium broth, rinse the cannellini beans and adding salt to taste at the end of the last cooking step. I have made quite a few of Judy's recipes, however, this is one of my favorites from her. Enjoy!

This is very good soup. Love all the flavors easy to make. My family loves spinach so I had to try this one. I only used a pinch of pepper flakes and it was just right for us. Love the hint of oregano in this soup and the fresh taste the parsley gives it. I found that it only needed pepper as the ham and cheese are salty enough. I will be making this again.

Yahoo! Another great soup for the Fall. I used fresh spinach as andypandy suggested and will try sausage or kielbasa next time. I reduced the crushed peppers to 1/2 tsp. Try it with Pam Whitmire's Cheese Toast II (Cheese Toast II or Debbie8760's Sizzler's cheese toast Sizzler's Cheese Toast ) Perfecto!

This is a very good soupper soup. I made it using two hot sausages because I didn't have any ham in the freezer, also used frozen chopped spinach It worked out fine, next time I make this I will use the fresh spinach and and I bet it will rate a ten. Thanks for the new recipe.
