Creamy soup that is super easy to make in one pot. I have also tried adding a teaspoon of red pepper flakes for a little extra heat.

I loved this recipe! The only changes I made was I had to use vegetable broth instead of chicken and I sautéed the onion and bacon first. This would be a great recipe to can up for winter with the abundance of zucchini in the summer! Read More

Tasty soup very similar to a traditional split pea. So similar that I may try with a ham bone next time. To honor the "creamy" description I may substitute the water for half & half next time to up the fatty flavor. Great the way it is though - sopping up with a loaf of ciabatta. Thank you! Read More
