Tinned or frozen peas make this a quick and easy soup. Tastes even better the next day! Got this recipe from my Italian grandmother.

this soup is delicious, has the consistency of goulash, was getting bare in the cupboards and thought i'd do something with endless cans of peas, what a great choice! i did not have the noodles, so i just used the noodles out of a velveeta cheese box lol, and sprinkled with some parm cheese and served with garlic bread, yummy!!!! - 23 Dec 2009 (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)
