Cathie, Chef #533286's Note:
This soup makes great use of a leftover ham bone. It is relatively light and is a great starter or makes a meal with a nice salad and fresh bread. It is basically a mish mash of other recipes and uses up a lot of bits and pieces of leftover vegies in the fridge. I made it for my family of 3 and it was gone in 2 days! Enjoy!
