White Bean and Ham Soup

READY IN: 30mins
Recipe by Ginny Sue

This is a simple hearty soup that is just perfect in cooler weather. This comes together quickly, but tastes like it has been simmering for hours.

Very tasty! I used dried white beans that I cooked in the crockpot overnight, then added the other ingredients this morning and cooked for another hour or so. I did not use a tomato and found that with the ham being salty, we did not need to add any salt, just pepper. Great recipe--also would freeze well.
