I was cleaning up and came across a tablet of hand written recipes that I had copied down from somewhere. I don't remember where they came from but I thought I should put them here for safe keeping. I haven't made this yet. I looked at quite a few of the ham and lentil soup recipes here and most of them call for canned tomatoes. I liked that this one calls for fresh ones. When I make it I will probably add more ham b/c we like ham.
