Creamy Ham and White Bean Tortellini Soup


There is Ham and Bean Soup.  Then there's Creamy Ham and Bean Soup.  Then there's Creamy Ham and Bean Soup with pasta that is 1000X additional delicious! this can be the most effective Ham and Bean Soup simmered with ham, white beans, onions, carrots, celery, seasonings and pillowy, cheap pasta. it's deliciously creamy, exploding with flavor, very easy and lick your bowl delicious! half-hour ne'er tasted therefore good!

Does it get any higher than creamy soups?  From my geographical area chowder, White Chicken Chili,  Slow cookware Potato Soup to my Chicken dumpling Soup, Loaded Zuppa Toscana and currently this Creamy pea bean and Ham Soup.  It’s warm, comforting, and satisfying, nearly a meal-in-one and crazy delicious.

The idea for this Ham and Bean Soup came a couple of weeks agone once patron saint thought it might be fun to bake a ham, simply the 2 folks.  His eyes were larger than our stomachs  – manner larger.  I knew in real time I needed to form Ham and Cheese Breakfast Enchiladas with Creamy condiment Sauce (a must!) with the leftovers however there have been still leftovers – fortunately.  

It was then time for pea bean and ham soup, however not simply any pea bean and ham soup, however a lightened up creamy soup with pillows of cheese stuffed food as a result of biting into cheese stuffed pasta makes each eat better!  Consequentially, i feel this can be the most effective Ham and Bean Soup out there.  I hope you agree!
