1/4 teaspoon basil
1/8 teaspoon seasoning salt

1/4 cup celery leaves
1 cup sliced carrot
1/3 cup dried split peas
1 cup elbow macaroni
grated parmesan cheese

Also, you can freeze this soup and use later. To reheat: remove from freezer and thaw. Place soup in saucepan and heat, stirring, until hot.
