“This ham, bean and rice soup is my favorite and it is a hearty dinner soup. Sprinkle bowls of soup with Parmesan cheese and serve hot. Serve extra cheese at the table. Offer crusty, Italian bread with the soup. You may substitute macaroni for the rice.”

This is a really good soup and it even got better the longer that it sat. I used diced prosciutto and Great Northern beans because I had no idea what cranberry beans were. Also used instant brown rice (preparing according to the box directions) and it turned out great. Went well with a Berenger Zinfindal.

Wow, this was great! I followed the recipe with two changes. I 1 cup of instant brown rice, adding it for the second 10 minutes of the 20 minute simmer, and I added some old bay seasoning to add a little more depth of flavor, even celery salt instead of plain salt will add a little more flavor. We love this and I will definitely make it again!

I'm always on the lookout for low-fat, high fiber recipes so I was excited to try out this soup. I was not disappointed! I made a couple changes. I omitted the bacon - I am watching my cholesterol so decided to skip the fried meat. I couldn't find cranberry beans anywhere, even after making a trip to a health food store and searching high and low. I substituted for those with an extra can of white beans. In sum, the soup was delicious and I will be making it again.
