      I made 1/2 the recipe using can peas. I couldn`t use 1/2 cup of olive oil (seemed like too much)just used 1 tablespoon. Which I used to saute the onions, garlic, rosemary (I used fresh 1 teaspoon) then added the 2 tomatoes. As of todays date there is no direction above of what to do with garlic, rosemary, tomatoes. As I ladled into the bowl It seemed too thin for the peas so I put a cups worth in a blender blended and added it back to the soup. Which made for a heartier soup. I top with grated cheese and lots of black pepper. I used water but I do suggest using broth! I had a hard time rating this because of the directions and found the soup I did adjust a couple things to my liking. Sorry Mimi :( But it was just OK Not Bad but OK.:)
