"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."

"WOW great flavor, when I was making this recipe and I just got it boiling the whole house smelled like sage and I thought Oh No this isn't going to be good but after letting simmer for 2 hours it turned out fine, actually really good there isn't an over powering sage flavor like the smell I got from cooking it, it has lost of flavor and isn't watery I will make this again, thanks for the recipe."

"This is a good tasting hearty soup. I always add Italian seasonings and garlic to my soups. The ony thing differnt I'll do next time, and it's only because it's a family preference, is strain the soup and smooth it through the food processor. The taste is great, though!"
