This is a good recipe. I modified it by using two 32 oz boxes of chicken stock and I used dried herbs instead of fresh. I also added an extra celery stalk. I used two bay leaves and about a teaspoon each of oregano, basil, rosemary and sage. The peas actually cooked in an hour which was great. I was afraid it would take longer. It was like mom used to make. The potato really makes it a little thicker. Lots of the other recipes I contemplated did not have potato. I will certainly make this again. The fiancee loved it. I actually made it at his request.
