Split Pea Parmesan Spread
A favorite of mine from _Laurel's Kitchen_ is split-pea parmesan spread. I made it last night and think I can quote it from memory: 1 c. cooked split peas 2 T. mayonnaise 2 T. Parmesan cheese 2 T. cottage cheese 1/2 t. salt 1/4 t. dried, crumbled basil (or use more fresh) It looks and tastes nice on store-bought black rye that they call pumpernickel. I usually substitute more cottage cheese for less mayo plus I just tried "fat-free cholestoral-free mayo" but I must admit the best version is the original. The "wonder-what-it-is mayo" just didn't add the right tang.
