Cassie made this for us and it was so delicious! I loved the cheesy flavor and the smoothness of the soup. We cut our ham, potatoes and onions in larger chunks and just cooked them a little longer. I look forward to having this again! Thanks! Mike

This was very good. I replaced the cheddar with parmesan.
