Here's a real gem! After tasting a similar soup at a popular restaurant in the Twin Cities, I came up with my own version. Everyone who tastes it says it's wonderful. Adding the almonds at the end gives the soup a fun crunch.

Mondays were washdays at our house when I was a child, and because of it being such a busy day, washdays were always soup days. My grandma's pea soup was a family favorite. What makes it different from any other pea soups I have tried is the addition of whole peas, spaetzle-like "dumplings" and sausage. Try it one and you'll be hooked. —Carole Talcott, Dahinda, Illinois
