This is really an excellent recipe. I've had split pea soup before, but have never really loved it. I bought some kielbasa on special this week and was looking for a good recipe to try. This was perfect! My husband and I both agree we will never have "regular" split pea soup again. Here is what I changed in the recipe: used chicken broth instead of beef, and used turkey kielbasa instead of regular. It was fantastic. I did have to add a fair amount of water; the recipe didn't say to cover the pot while simmering so some of the liquid boiled off. Next time, I'll be sure to cover it. Thanks for a great recipe!

I really enjoyed this version of split pea soup. My mom always made it with ham hocks when I was growing up, but I was trying to find something with more meat flavor in it. This was perfect! My family loved it, including my 17-month-old son. I plan to stick with this recipe whenever I make split pea soup in the future. Yum!

We started the peas cooking on their own, then browned the sausage and onion, with a clove of garlic, and drained the grease. Judging by the amount of fat we poured off, I'm glad we did, or the soup would have been too greasy. Then we poured the peas in and finished them cooking with everything and pureed everything pretty smooth in the food processor at the end. Delicious!
