Instructions Checklist
  • Place the ham bone into a large pot and fill with enough water to cover. Bring to a boil and cook for 15 minutes. Add the onion and tomatoes, then stir in the frozen mixed vegetables and potatoes. Simmer for about 20 minutes, then add the macaroni, rice, and chopped ham. Cover and simmer over medium-low heat for 1 1/2 hours. Any ham on the bone should come off easily. Stir in the tomato sauce and let cool for about 15 minutes before serving.

The flavor of this was very good. I think there must be an error in the amount of time the pasta and rice cooks.An hour and a half was way too long. It was very mushy. I think if they were added w/ only 15-20 minutes remaining it would have been delicious. Read More

This sounded really different from the old potato and ham soup but my family did not care for it. I think it was using noodles and rice together. I will try again but only use either rice or noodles. I have really picky eaters when it comes to those ing. Thanks for the post. Read More

Delicious. The cooking time was weird though. My pasta and veggies came out mushy plus the potatoes were completely gone (melted away). I suggest this cook time instead. Boil then simmer ham bone med- low - 1 hr Add potatoes - 30 min Add all other ingredients except tomato sauce - 30 min For flavor I added garlic & onion powder & boullion cubes Read More

Very bland. Needs some spices to give it some flavor. Added the noodles with only a 1/2 hour of cooking time left. Noodles were perfect. Read More

Followed the recipe exactly no changes made. Felt it needed something else. I have other recipes for soup that uses a ham bone which I would choose over this one. It isn't bad but it just isn't a keeper for me. My husband did say it tasted better than he thought it was going to. I kept my opinion to myself until after he had a bowl. I was hoping it would have more flavor but just didn't do it for me. Sorry. Read More

This was an okay recipe with some tweeking. I thought the ham would have given it more of a salty flavor but didn't... I did add the seasonings suggested by other reviewers and I used fresh vegetables instead of frozen... Once spooned out in bowls I added a ton of pepper and cheese as a topper which made it better. I also omitted the pasta and just did cooked rice. I just thought it didn't need more carbs in it with the potatoes as well. Also for my family of 4 (two kids 6 and 3) it made WAY TOO MUCH. I think I would have been happier using my ham bone with a white bean soup recipe. Read More
