Split Pea Soup Recipe @pinch

So, split pea soup isn't the prettiest but this recipe definitely tastes delicious. It's a thick and creamy split pea soup with a slightly smoky flavor from the smoked sausage. The sausage really adds a lot of interest to a normally mild-flavored soup. Not only easy to make, but this is also an economical meal. Grandma Joy's recipe for goodness. Absolutely delicious!
