I love this recipe. So easy to add your own choices of meat or whatever. I sauté the veggies in olive oil, add breakfast sausage and then add chicken stock and peas. Just like my mom made when I was a kid. So many good memories??

My husband and I loved this...my boys (5 &3) not so much since I added more pepper. I omitted the salt since the kielbasa was already plenty salty!

This is my all time favorite split pea soup! I have been making it since I found it in the 1998 Taste of Home magazine. I substitute 1 package of frozen sliced carrots, to make preparation easier and increase the amount of carrots. I serve garnished with a dollop of sour cream and sprinkled lightly with lemon-pepper. DELISH!!!!

Made this last winter and will make again this winter but I will put in diced ham as I prefer over kielbasa.

Delicious and light ! This is a very simple supper, especially on cooler days.

Good, but I prefer split pea soup made with ham--it imparts a smokier flavor throughout the soup.

This soup is so good. I used the turkey sausage also and it was perfect. I highly recommend this recipe.
