"I had prepared this recipe when it was firstfeatured in Taste of Home and I found it really good-it was a recipe which I definitely will use if I make Split Pea soup!I did make adjustments on this recipe to suit my tastes: I used 2 Tbsp. vegetable oil I also used 3/4 tsp. Italian seasoning.The soup came out tasting delicious!Thank you, Holly Dow, for this recipe!DELowenstein"
"This recipe was very bland. I looked up another recipe from this site and added spices and it was so much better. I will be using the other recipe going forward."
"Next time I make this recipe, I will omit added salt; the ham makes it salty enough. Otherwise, great combination of spices!"
"My family loves this soup. I added chopped carrots and celery to it with the onion. Yum!"
"This is very good and very easy to make"
