Classic pea soup.

Top Review by Boomette

Very yummy soup. I cooked it longer cause my peas weren't cooked through. So I needed to add more liquid. It turned out very yummy. And now I just saw that I forgot to add the milk. But it was very good without it. Thanks WorkingMom :) Made for I Recommend tag game
