 This is an easy, tasty meal that my entire family enjoyed.  I served it with rolls.  I would trade out the ham for kielbasi for a change the next time I make this. Otherwise I would make no changes.

I made this for dinner last night and it was pretty good. I was really surprised at how much flavor it had without cooking for very long. I will say that it seems to be missing something.... after trying it, I threw the rest of the country home in there which doubled the amount of ham in the recipe, which didn't impact it all that much. The fiancé thought it was great, so that's a plus - just not my favorite. Easy, fast meal with lots of leftovers for busy people!

This is delicious - especially given I used all frozen vegatables! It is a little salty, so maybe look for low-sodium broth and tomatoes? I was worried the country ham was supposed to be pre-cooked, but that is not the case. My entire family loved it (age 4 - 40!). Add this to your week night list!

This soup is delicious! It's more like a cross between a stew and a soup. My husband loves it. I would not change a thing about the recipe, it's delicious just the way it is!

I also add some diced white potatoes. Better than Mrs. Fearnow's! My family loves it and it is easy to make.
