Printer Friendly

1 c. dry green or yellow split peas                                   
½ c. onion, diced
5 c. water                                                                     
1 garlic clove, minced
5 beef bouillon cubes                                                           
½ c. minced red bell pepper
½ lb. Italian sausage                                                                
½ c. dry red wine or hot water
1 c. celery, chopped
Grated Parmesan cheese

In a large saucepan or pot, combine peas, water, bouillon, and pepper.  Heat to boiling. Reduce heat, cover, and simmer until peas are tender, about 40 minutes, stirring occasionally. In a large skillet over medium heat, cook sausage until there is no trace of pink, breaking it up as it cooks. Add celery, onion, garlic, and red pepper and cook until onion is tender and translucent, about 5 minutes. Add sausage-vegetable mixture to peas along with the wine and simmer 10 to 15 minutes to allow flavors to blend. Serve sprinkled with grated Parmesan cheese.
