This is a great way to use the last of the Easter ham. It's pure comfort food, but also a great way to get a good variety of vegetables.

  • Stir beans and potatoes into ham broth and simmer for 10 minutes. Meanwhile, cut ham into bite-size pieces and return to the pot. Add tortellini to the ham and bean soup; simmer until pasta is tender, 7 to 9 minutes. Stir zucchini and parsley into soup and continue to simmer until zucchini is tender, about 5 minutes more.

  • Divide soup into bowls and garnish with Parmesan cheese and black pepper.
