Created by rossella rago,

Although most of my recipes are inspired by a Nonna, this one is all my Mamma Angela! She's always been a little more "sbrigativa" in the kitchen but always ends up making something delicious in no time at all. This soup is light and delicious while still being hearty and comforting. As a true Pugliese girl I love the bitterness of the broccoli rabe against the sweetness of the split peas. I hope you do too! Make sure you serve this with a drizzle of good quality olive oil "a crudo". your social media marketing partner

  1. Put a large stock pot over a medium-high flame. Add the water, bouillon cubes, split peas, onion, carrots, celery and mushrooms to the pot. Bring the pot to a boil and lower the flame to a simmer. Cook until the split peas are tender and begin to break down, about 20-30 minutes.
  2. Add the broccoli rabe and return the pot to a low boil. Cook just until the broccoli rabe is tender, about 7-10 minutes.
  3. Portion into bowls and drizzle with good quality extra virgin olive oil. Serve with crusty Italian bread.
