    Lennie's Note:

    Another celebrity recipe. I do not know if you should chop up the tomatoes or not, but this sounds great. This would be vegan if you don't use the butter.

      Well, I gotta say I was leary of making this as I am a fan of split pea and ham soup. This was awsome. I made it yesterday for lunch/dinner today and it did not make it past 8:00 P.M. it was that good. My daughter, who is a vegetarian thanks you, and has informed me that not only will I be making it again today, but can plan on making this on a regular basis. The only thing I changed was the tomato-I could not find fresh tomatoes that were worth buying so I used a small can of whole tomatoes with juice. I also liked the fact that I could slide some Lentils past my DH! Excellent recipe! Di

      This was quite delicious and easy, too. I think I'll reduce the butter next time -- don't get me wrong -- it was utterly delicious -- I just think I could get by with a little less butter and it taste just as good! Thanks!

      This is delicious and easy to make. Instead of the fresh tomatoes, I used a 16-oz can of 'recipe-cut' tomatoes. I can't see any point in cooking fresh tomatoes that long -- they're going to be just like canned tomatoes after all that time. I used a scant 1/4 CUP of canola margerine rather than the 1/4 LB of butter, and it was certainly rich enough. Butter IS good with split-pea soup, tho. A person who's not worried about cholesterol might want to add a spoonful to a serving made with minimal margerine.
