      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.
      this is sooo good with grilled cheese sandwiches…that is, if you have room for it! LOL!
