There's nothing like a hearty soup to warm you up on a chilly day! When I was a teenager, I worked at a restaurant that had a ham and broccoli soup in their "soup of the day" rotation. This is my twist on that recipe!

WAY too much macaroni and not enough ham. Not much flavor. This would need lots of revision to make again! Read More

My husband and I loved it. More of a stew than a soup, which is the way we like it, not very brothy, but you could always just add broth if you wanted something soupier. It seems like a pretty healthy meal, overall, lots of vegetables and not so much meat. Great flavor combination, with the savory, salty ham offsetting the tender broccoli and sweeter sweet potato. I used broth instead of bouillon and water, but that was a pretty minor change. Nice recipe. Read More
