As a change-up from your standard bean soup recipe, add some Italian seasonings, grated Parmesan and ditalini pasta for Pasta e Fagioli. I love it; I could eat it every day for lunch along with some nice hot bread.

I usually buy smoked ham hocks or ham shanks. Get some 13 bean soup in the bulk aisle at Winco. Put the ham in the bottom of the slow cooker, add in enough beans to cover the meat, then pour just enough water to cover the beans. Add some bay leaves and cook on low until the beans are soft (usually 8-10 hours). Take out bay leaves and eat.

So delicious and easy to make it should be illegal.

The only problem I've found with it is that you can't store the leftover beans & broth with the leftover pasta *in* it. If you don't store them separately, the pasta absorbs the broth, swells up and turns into gloppy, donut-shaped dumplings. Not what you want in your numptious Italian bean soup.

My wife and I either store the leftovers separately, or else make just enough fresh ditalini for immediate use (so we're only storing the beans & broth).

I pretty much followed option #2. There is just a little left over and I will finish it today.

We used to make ham and egg noodle casserole,''Farmers Breakfast''... German Farmer’s Breakfast Recipe | Simply Recipes
Sometimes we made ''Strong Max'',a slice of bread, sometimes fried in butter, covered with ham and fried egg. The ham may also be pan-fried; (it is also possible to replace the ham with a slice of roast beef.) Cheese and tomato and dill pickkles are also used for decoration.

Would he feel weird about a sandwich spread made in the blender from ham and whatever he likes with ham -- like mustard or cranberry relish?

I did make a sandwich spread in the food processor with ham and onion and celery, red sweet pepper, mayo and lots of sweet pickle relish...and a touch of Dijon. It is really good. He had some as a snack on saltines.....said it was good.
