SUCH a GREAT IDEA! I have massive Corned Beef leftovers from St Patrick's Day. This is the BEST IDEA I could have imagined. Thank you, thank you, thank you neighbor...95124. Leftover carrots and little red potatoes, too...into the soup at the last 2 minutes...Thank you.

Made exactly as listed and the flavor was fantastic! It was however, too thick for my liking, easy to correct. Definitely a keeper!

this was very good. must admit to not using a couple of spices (basil&marjoram). tasting the flavor along the way didn't think they were needed, somehow basil just didn't sound right to my taste buds, not saying it's wrong just didn't need to use.we are such fans of split pea soup.

Yes, I can see why this is an award winning recipe. It was PHENOMENAL! The only change I made was I added some hickory smoked kielbasa. My 4 year old grand-daughter loved it also and asked for another bowl.

Fantastic recipe! I used ham, added an extra carrot and am not a fan of sage, so I left that out. Followed the directions and the flavor was delicious.
