    Default Pea Soup with Ditalini

    Pea Soup with Ditalini
    1 lb dried split peas
    8 cups water
    1 large celery rib with leaves, sliced
    3 tbs parsley
    1 beef or chicken couillon cube, crushed
    1 large bay leaf
    1 carrot, coarsely chopped
    1 lb thick slice of ham, rinsed and finely diced
    3 tbs extra-virgin olive oil
    1 small onion, very finely chopped

    1 tsp salt
    1/2 cup ditalini
    black pepper to taste
    Wash the peas, place them in a large pan, and cover with the water. Add the celery, parsley, bouillon cube, bay leaf, carrot, and one-third of the ham. Bring to a boil, then lower the heat and simmer until the pease disintegrate, about 1 hour. Meanwhile, warm the olive oil in a small pan. Add the onion and saute gently until soft, about 5 minutes. Stir the onion, remaining ham, salt, and ditalini into the soup pan and cook over medium heat until done, about 9 minutes. Stir in the parsley and pepper and check for salt before serving. Serves 4 = about 775 calories.
