    I prefer pea soup with bacon or ham, but this probably is a healthier alternative and tasty too.
    This was very much enjoyed by my husband. I have to dispute the liquid amount, though--and the cooking time! I had to add about 1 1/2 cups water b/c the peas had absorbed most of the broth about halfway thru cooking time--added water & turned up the temp to high to get those peas to cook! It eventually worked out, but next time will add that water, and then I think the cooking time of 5 hours on low should be sufficient. I also used turkey kielbasa, which hubby very much enjoyed. I also added salt, black pepper & used oregano & thyme for the marjoram. Thanks for such a flavorful recipe!

    Great! I too used turkey kielbasa. I used 6 Cups of broth, and used fresh marjoram instead of dried. This was very good and very easy. My husband loved it, and with the turkey kielbasa, it's much less fattening than the traditional ham bone version. Will be making this again and again!

    Another winner as usual Derf!! I used turkey kielbasa as that is what I had. No celery (allergy). SUPER yummy. I also used stock, I don't have canned broth. Needed about another cup of liquid. I cooked mine on hi for 4 hours. Kids loved it. This didn't make as much as I was expecting (no leftovers) but it was well worth the effort (LOL). THANK YOU!!!! UPDATE July 10, 2008: We had this for dinner tonight, and had the in-laws and Aunt over too. I used 8 oz. of bulk italian sausage, again no celery, and carmelized the onions with the sausage as I browned it. My sausage was frozen, so I cut it into cubes and then browned it, this was great! One of my daughters had 4 bowls! Again, this does not make a lot, but is so yummy!!! UPDATE DEC. 28, 2008: Well this time we made it with Sinai sausage from Costco, I just cut it into little cubes. VERY yummy!! My BIL liked it alot too! This is so far our favorite pea soup recipe!!

    This is great! I used 6c stock, 4 ribs celery, 4 carrots, and turkey kielbasa. Also, I cooked it on low for 6 hours. (I added the extra veggies just to use them up before they spoiled).
