      Made this soup last night for dinner using a lb. or so of leftover ham from Christmas. It was very good. I cut back on the amount of liquid and didn't process the soup with a blender because I like a thick soup. Will cut back on the onions next time. The crushed red pepper (just a little!) gives it a little zip that I like. DH and I eat simple soup and bread suppers a lot in the winter and this one hit the spot!

      The only change to this recipe was I added chopped leeks, mainly because they were there and I had to use them up. My husband said it was the best pea soup he ever had.

      this is my first time making split pea soup and I thought it came out great! Even my 4yr old seemed to like it! The only change I made was I did not add the milk & I did not puree.. I also put red pepper in sparingly because of the kids. I used leftover spiral ham from Christmas.
